Kathryn McLeod

A few years ago, she had an insane dream that would require her to leave her job, sell her possessions, buy a one-way ticket to Africa and risk everything…

In 2012, she made that dream a reality by co-founding a web-based initiative geared towards raising the awareness of Global Citizenship and eco-tourism.

Was she scared? You bet! Confident that this project would would broaden her mind and shape her future? Absolutely!

"Together we can help students thrive."
