Outward Bound has been the most transformative experience of my life - twice. In the fall of 2012, I showed up at the beginning so anxious and depressed I spoke with a stutter and couldn't even make eye contact with anyone. Over the course of the next 50 days, I found my voice. I became more assertive and confident, and for the first time in my life I even started to become comfortable in leadership roles. On my 2013 course, I pushed myself in new ways because I was shocked by how much more I was able to discover about myself. In other words, the lessons I learned from those activities are what I will carry forward with me wherever I go. Outward Bound is a microcosm of life, with all of its trials and successes compressed into a brief period of time. Having been through this microcosm twice, I couldn't be more grateful for having had this chance to see the best in myself.

The first group of students I instructed in Big Bend National Park was a hardy crew. They quickly adapted to the lifestyle of the desert. The wide open spaces, unmatched sunsets, and the feeling of waking up under the stars, created a sense of wonder for our group. The desert is a place to contemplate and appreciate the stillness. Hard days of hiking helped us appreciate the cool breeze of the evenings in camp. We could not have asked for a more meaningful environment for the month-long course.
