Dan just graduated from University of Michigan, and will be heading to Africa in the winter with the Peace Corps. He wants to get some experience roughing it before shipping out, as he has very little backpacking skills - and this trail corps seems to be the perfect opportunity. He recently grew a mustache for charity, but thankfully it is now shaved.
Dan also just realized he doesn't have enough to say about himself to make a 2-3 paragraph biography. But hopefully after a few years and a few awesome experiences like this summer, he'll be able to put together a much more interesting personal summary.
My name is Kaitlin Kisiel, I am 22 years old and I am currently living in West Union, SC. I am a senior at North Greenville University, and I am majoring in Outdoor Leadership. I’m also a senior in the ROTC program at Furman University. My hope for after graduation is to become an Aviation Officer and fly Blackhawk’s for the US Army. I have an older brother who is 24 years old and is a 2LT in the US Army, and I have an older sister who is 28 years old and is a river raft guide. I enjoy bouldering and going to the climbing gym in my free time. I’m afraid of heights but love the adrenaline rush of skydiving and bungee jumping.
Howdy. My name is Laura Pershern. I'm from northern Minnesota (the Iron Range). I've spent the past two years in Oregon rafting, hiking, skiing, learning to rock climb, and going (every now and then) to Portland State University. I'm interested in the world and I love to live in it.
My name is Alejandro Alvarez but you can call me Alex. Although I am 100% Peruvian, I was born and raised in Brooklyn and am going to my Senior year of college (after this summer) at Stony Brook University in Long Island, NY. As for my hobbies I shoot Olympic style archery, play some soccer, handball, and enjoy watching movies. I also enjoy meeting new people and being part of community service/volunteer events.
My name is Brian Chill and I grew up in a small town in southern Michigan called Marshall. I go to college at Western Michigan University where I major in English and Environmental Studies. I enjoy playing frisbee, film, and being outside. This will be my second summer with SCA and I look forward to spending time in a new part of the country.
