Karina Gallant is a senior at Explorations Academy in Bellingham. She finds one of the most appealing aspects of attending this non-traditional school is the opportunity to travel internationally. Karina spent a month in Colombia earlier this year travelling and working on a service project at the Alex Rocha Youth Center in Cartagena. Upon her return, Karina was eager to do more travelling with a purpose. When she heard about the One Sherpa Home project, she jumped on the opportunity knowing that she wanted to make an impact and dedicate herself to a valuable cause.
Karina is an avid rock climber, skier, hiker and has always had a love for reading and writing. She will get a chance to combine these passions as Away Team Journalist for One Sherpa Home. Her regular posts to this blog will document, with words and photos, the day to day efforts of building a home at 13,000 feet. Donate to One Sherpa Home here!
