The mentoring I received instantly became an integral part of who I am as a woman, taking me to my personal growth edge.

The impact I feel I've made on the community as a volunteer staff will never leave me. I not only learned the basics of wilderness survival, but I've learned how to inspire others through full wilderness immersion, how to teach important concepts through storytelling, and how to truly connect with the natural world by experiencing the value and wisdom that it holds at every turn. My experience with Twin Eagles has inspired me to discover how to use what I've learned to make a difference in my own community.”
