Africa Picture


I spent four months doing humanitarian work in Sub-Saharan Africa with Life Project, an organization focused on administering aid to orphans and widows affected by HIV/AIDS. During my time in Africa I led a team of humanitarians to Zanzibar, Tanzania. We spent time in local communities educating about HIV/AIDS and helping with any community projects we could.

The Baja of Mexico is a beautiful place, but it can get very hot. I worked as a Mission Operator for Overland Missions, a humanitarian organization, in Baja and mainland Mexico. I lead humanitarian groups through some of the hottest deserts in North America, and everyone made it out alive. Most of the work we did in Mexico was with local fisherman in rural communities. If there was something that needed to be done, we offered our services.
