Bio: I just graduated on May 2, 2015 with a Master of Architecture degree, and before I find a job and settle down for a bit, I wanted to go on an adventure and experience something on my own. My plan has changed several times, but for now, I will be hiking a 300 mile section of the Appalachian Trail through Virginia, and hopefully in a couple of years thru-hike then entire AT. I found the Appalachian Trail through researching human migration for my thesis project. Once I read about it, I was hooked. I knew I wanted to experience it for myself. Last year in 2014, I went on a 5 day section hike with my dad and I've been obsessed ever since. Such a huge part of me stayed there and I have to go back for it! I leave on May 10 and will hopefully be back around June 14.
