How do I want to change the world? I want to help create unique experiences that inspire imaginations and create possibilities for others to “go for it” (whatever their “it” is)!
Expert Comments: After watching Laurie’s video submission I believe she is a triple threat and a strong contender for the position of Island Intern. (1) Her video proves that she knows how to stay on message. She touched on and addressed the different skill sets you want in an island intern. (2) Laurie claims her sense of adventure was ingrained in her since she’s been a child. The fact that she is on a sailboat heading to Panama leads to me to believe that Laurie is not only talk but very much action. (3) Laurie has strong advocacy skills as well as social media skills so, if chosen, I surmise she will have little trouble getting ‘her word’ out. – Evelyn Hannon, Journeywoman.com
Laurie is definitely a passionate and experienced traveler who cares a lot about the world around her. I would really like to have seen her a little more comfortable in her own skin and less rehearsed though, so we could really get to know her personality. – Kim Mance, Writer and Travel Show Host
Comments: Laurie is truly dedicated her life to cultural immersion and life-changing travel. We love her experience advocating for great causes and loved hearing about the trip that made her fall in love with Panama.
