How did you hear about Thirst Project?

A couple weeks before graduation, my friend, Emily Yanos, mentioned this epic road trip she took as a Thirst Project Road Warrior. I was instantly hooked. In a span of three days on maybe an hour of sleep, I had two interviews and was signed on as a Road Warrior – every single day it is truly remarkable the opportunity I have been given to help better the lives of others.


What you are most excited about for the School Tour?

I am most excited about the opportunity to work with youth. I cannot wait to foster relationships with them that will live and grow through Thirst Project – individuals coming together to change the world. We all share a common belief and through that we are limitless and that is something no one can take away from us.


Why you think water is important?

Water is life. I never truly understood those words until about a month ago when I first walked in Thirst Project HQ, but they are never more true than today. Water is a community’s oxygen; it’s lifeline; it’s foundation – it truly changes everything.


What are some of your hobbies/interests?

Binge watching Netflix, quoting F.R.I.E.N.D.S., cooking, and drinking hot chocolate


What is your spirit animal and why?

A very cute kitty because buzzfeed told me so. :]


Where or who do you look to for inspiration?

Honestly, anywhere and anyone. Mostly though, I find inspiration through interacting with people. Human beings are fascinating and as of just recently, I have found inspiration stepping out of my comfort zone and taking any opportunity to hear other’s stories. Everyone has a story to tell, but often times I’m too busy talking and not seizing the opportunity to listen.
