"I've gone through a lot on this trip and I can happily say I've learned so much from the wilderness and the people who have been with me through all of this. I've found joy, peace, fulfillment, and so much more. I've grown so much as a person, and I helped the people around me grow, too. I'm overjoyed that I've done this and would do it all again in a heartbeat."
