Living in the woods is quite an experience, but dealing with the outcomes and situations are what make it magnificent! Have you personally lived with 11 other humans in the beloved forest; cooking, eating, sleeping, working together, and breathing the forest air while maintaining a positive mental attitude? Have you?! If not, you are missing out on a crazy adventure! NYC has helped me find my passion for nature as well as the drive to never give up. I have learned that I must always challenge myself no matter how difficult the task is at hand. I have now found the peace, serenity and passion that were missing before I attended NYC. This experience that I am fortunate enough to have been afforded has pushed me out of my comfort zone, and has broadened my love of nature. Because of this journey, I know I am ready to pursue any future endeavors.
