Hi I’m Rae, I’m a 1st year Adult Nursing student at LJMU, going into my second year this September. I am the "Yes Man", literally can't stop myself, you will probably find me up a mountain in the Lake District, surfing, or paddle boarding somewhere! I also love to skydive and I’m the Social Sec for the LJMU skydiving club. I’ve have backpacked over the years, travelling round eastern and western Europe, India and Thailand. Before starting nursing I worked as a Holistic Therapist and yoga teacher for 8 years, and from that have some ideas up my sleeve for fundraising events for us all, plus some yoga sessions to help us climb Mount Kilimanjaro. I can’t wait to take on the challenge of Kilimanjaro, and welcome you to the team!!! 🏔🐐❤️
About a kilometer away from the gate that signifies the finish line of an incredible trek! The smiles on our face are a direct result of a dream achieved and also knowing there is a shower to look forward to that night! 😄
I think one of the coolest parts of connecting with people through traveling is learning their favorite spots, and adding to my ever-growing bucket list. For me, I love exploring where I’m from - the United States. It’s important for me to know my “own backyard” and see my country.
HOWEVER, there is something so magical about international travel. It allows you to experience something totally new and stretch yourself outside of your comfort zone.
For me, my favorite countries I’ve been to are Singapore, Kenya, and Italy - all very different but so beautiful.
