Backpacking, Travel, and Studying Abroad
Speaker: Devin Walker (AAMRI) and Javier Wallace (AAMRI)
Location: CLA 0.130
The Power Hour on February 5, 2018 featured Devin Walker and Javier Wallace speaking on backpacking, and also “blackpackas” which gives some cultural context for the brothers of AAMRI. Devin and Javier highlighted the experiences that one can have while backpacking, while emphasizing the importance of schedule fluidity to maximize ones’ backpacking experience and the relatively low costs associated with backpacking. Many brothers in AAMRI have never had an international experience, therefore, a critique to the Power Hour would be to find a way to convey traveling in a way that would make them more inclined to embark on life-changing experiences like that of Devin and Javier.
