I used to suffer from anxiety, taking the necessary medication, and was aspiring to work in an office for someone else. Hitchhiking alone around the world is certainly something that nobody I spoke to thought was possible, especially for someone like me.

So far on his trip, the lessons I have learned through the hardships of solo-hitchhiking have taught me that we are all capable of so much more than we think, and that the world we are told about on the news is nowhere near what it is in reality. I am trying to show you that feeling unable to do something is never a restriction. I aims to inspire and motivate people, young and old, in the hope that they will one day be brave enough to follow their own dream.

I attended Falmouth University and achieved an honors degree in Fine Art in 2015. It was really hard work, despite being on drugs the entire time. While I was studying for this, I also had the pleasure of being the head Walks Officer of the university’s Expedition Society. Through meeting like-minded people, I was led to attend an Expedition Planning weekend at the Royal Geographical Society in London, which set me on a U-turned course to become an adventurer.
