You get to the summit and you see how far you came, from your starting point. Its such a metaphor for life.

When coming home...

  • Emotions and changes Kirsten faced - Changes for herself in that she is more confident and will challenge herself, even more, she feels accomplished. Life is too short to not follow your passions and dreams. Say yes.
  • Biggest stress - Her finances and how to can I make more money so that I can have these experiences. Not knowing what to do outside of travel and adventure. Changes that she was faced with when coming home such as rising rent, increasing traffic and different quality of life.
  • How Kirsten used her mindset - Stay focused on your goals at the moment, if you don't you will stray from them. Keep putting on foot in front of the other. Stay positive and learn from your experiences.
  • 3 Lessons learned from travel and reverse culture shock
  1. I am able to do whatever I set my mind to. Confidence and level up my mindset.
  2. The world is a better place than we all think. Its full of opportunities and amazing people.
  3. There is a lot more to life than just to pay bills and exist. The more people travel and adventure the more they realise this. You might not have as much (in material things) but you will have the experiences and the memories.
  • Advise to her 16-year-old self to - Follow your dream life, its ok to be you, its ok to have different dreams and goals to other people, its ok to live your athentic life even if others don't agree with yourself. Trust yourself and follow your heart. Happiness does take some work, beleie in yourself, beleive in your adventure and beleive in your purpose.
I’m capable of making a quick decision and that things happen but as long as you are prepared you really don’t have to worry about them.
