I met some of the greatest people on my trip, and have continued to keep in contact and grow our friendships. The group of athletes you’ll go with will be experiencing everything with you and sharing a lifetime memory with you. I undoubtedly would tell anyone who can go, to go and see the world. We’ve worked hard to be where we are at athletically, and you get to experience a lifetime dream while playing the sport you love.
