Erin is a compassionate listener, story collector and cheerful adventurer. Erin will discover cultures through learning about familial norms, social customs, developing economies, faith, history, wildlife and cuisine! Erin is fascinated by the resiliency of the human heart and how we are all connected. She will ask the questions; What makes you happy? What experiences have helped you grow? What motivates you? She will gain a bigger understanding of the world and herself through talking with locals in Morocco, Egypt, Madagascar, Rwanda, Tanzania, India, Thailand and Indonesia. She is filled with gratitude for this life-changing opportunity. Next stop, Morocco!
