In October of this year I am heading to South America. I have never been to that part of the world and never really had a burning desire to do so. Whenever my spouse asked me to visit Argentina I found ways to shrug it off with an idea to go somewhere else. I guess fate had another plan. While surfing the internet, I happened to come across the Peaks Foundation and a chance to climb 3 peaks in 3 weeks. Initially I thought who the hell would want to do that and why. Well the answer proved to be me so i applied. I had climbed Kilamanjaro and done a few other things so I thought maybe I had a shot of making the team. Since the Peaks foundation only chose 13 women from around the world, I figured it might be a long shot but what the hell. Months passed and I had somewhat forgotten but held onto the possibility. My mind loved the idea and the excitement of meeting these other women, exploring a new part of the world and at the same time helping women and girls. Peaks had appealed to my love of adventure and my humanitarian interest; a win win for all. 8 months after I had applied, I learned that I had been chosen for the team. So now, let the journey begin.
