I am biking across the country in memory of my grandfather, who passed away last summer. Even during his battle with cancer, my grandfather was a fun-loving, active, and optimistic person whom I admired and loved. He did not let cancer stop him from doing what he loved in life--traveling, gardening, and spending time with his family. I want to help spread his message of hope, strength, and courage to others who are battling cancer.

Future Goals:
As for me, my future goals in life are to find a job I love, travel through Africa and Asia, and open my own coffee shop one day. My more immediate goal is to make it to San Francisco in one piece!
