David in Riga
2018 | Riga, Latvia | TechHub Riga
The trip has been an eye-opening, culturally enriching experience. Before this trip, I was never much of a traveler. I had always had plans of travel - maybe once I finished school, got a job, or whatever excuse I could make for myself-, but I never truly seized any opportunity to do as such. I...

2017 | Pune, India | Forbes Marshall

Ali Hoffer
2016 | Bluefields | blueEnergy
It is one thing to know that people in developing countries live in complete poverty with a lack of access to so many basic resources such as electricity, clean water, and sometimes even food.  It is completely different, however, to go live that life for 2 months, especially after growing up in a...
