  • “A feeling that almost brings tears to my eyes is when we were crossing the Common and everyone was there cheering us on and welcoming us home.

That feeling is what brings me hope and happiness and I hope to carry that motivation with me for the rest of my time at Sterling and with my future life expeditions.”
