America Team

We are embarking on this roadtrip this summer because we are at a point in our lives where we have to be making major decision regarding our paths in life, but this is difficult because it seems that all people can tell us is to go to law school, medical school, or something else safe and practical. We range in personal situations from being pressured to persue a certain path, to knowing what to do but not sure how to get there, to not having the slightest clue at all. The reason for these interviews is to meet people who have defined their own roads; people who have driven themselves to follow their passions despite countless obstacles; and most importantly, people who love what they do and are excited to get out of bed every morning. The interviews on our roadtrip will allow us to ask the questions that we wonder about every day, the questions we have never been able to ask. From these stories we hope to gain courage and wisdom to apply to our own roads in life.
