I am doing this Mt. Kilimanjaro Reach Beyond expedition with Outward Bound because I have recently separated from my husband and have experienced some mental health challenges. In the last year, I have been rigorously working on my co-dependency recovery to heal spiritually, mentally and physically. When I was 16, I completed a 21 day Outward Bound course in northern Ontario. It had a huge impact on my life and really boosted my confidence as a teenager. I realized that, again I am in need of a healthy dose of self-confidence to help me embrace my new life and become my true self again. I have always dreamed of exploring the world and have been drawn to Africa ever since I read the book ‘The Power of One’ by Bryce Courtenay as a teenager. When I looked at the courses that Outward Bound had to offer, I instantly knew that going to Africa to climb a mountain was exactly what I needed to do at this point in my journey of life!
I believe that every person can benefit immensely from an Outward Bound experience. I am grateful for this opportunity to help make it a reality for people who desperately need it but are not in a financial position to do it on their own. Thank you Outward Bound, for making the world a better place one person at a time!
