At a young age I was lucky enough to travel around the world with my family. This transformed how I think about the world and what I want to do with my life. I developed a passion to explore unseen perspectives and take the less common road.
After a summer long bike trip through the Himalayas and the southern cone of Africa I began to understand what it means to Give'r. To me, choosing to Give'r is fully immersing yourself in whatever challenge you undertake and pushing your personal limits, physically and mentally.
My favorite way to Give’r is through mountain biking. What started in 7th grade as biking around the local towns and trails in Massachusetts has developed to biking across Spain, Nepal, and various countries in Africa. After biking through Namibia and becoming familiar with the people and seeing what positive effects a bicycle can have, I have created my own charity organization that collects and sends bicycles to this amazing country. At the age of 16, I am grateful for the opportunity to give back to the communities I learned so much from in Africa.
I encourage everyone no matter what age or location to take on a challenge, make a difference, and just Give'r!
