My Manifesto

My Manifesto

Throughout this experience, I have looked forward, backward, and every direction in-between, and discovered a lot about myself thru my time at Roadtrip Nation. I have learned so much about who I am as a person, and what I see in my future. I have learned vital focus skills, and how too formulate my own ideals, and block out the noise. I learned how to be self serving in a healthy way, and that is the most valuable part.

Advice from my Leader

"Always keep your feet where they are. Always stay motivated and always keep your chin up. If someone tells you you cannot do something, that most certainly means that you can. Do not let their doubt stop your own passion."

My Cold-Calls

My Cold-Calls

treat everyone you meet and talk to with respect. It is important to recall and keep yourself calm.

Before and After


Before my leader interview i thought that success is a straight and narrow path with no margin for error, but now i realize that it is often filled with defining failures.
