  • “At Sterling, there’s a real history of being able to see where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you’re going. Sterling is a really experiential place. Here, you can get a feel for the kind of world you want to live in, and what kind of world we can create.”

  • “A feeling that almost brings tears to my eyes is when we were crossing the Common and everyone was there cheering us on and welcoming us home. That sense of community and love is why I am happy to be at Sterling. That feeling is what brings me hope and happiness and I hope to carry that motivation with me for the rest of my time at Sterling and with my future life expeditions.”
