Yankee Kiwis

Our names are Fawna, Allison, and Ray... three individuals as different as the states that we live in (Maryland, Kentucky and California). The common thread bringing us together is that we are all at confusing crossroads in our lives: being forced to figure out what to do with our lives after graduating from college. Beginning in June, we will set off on a life-altering adventure across the Pacific and plunge into the culture and customs of New Zealand, in hope of defining our paths in life. Starting in Auckland, we will travel across the country connecting with unconventional individuals who have followed their own passions in life and used these passions as a guide to define their own roads.
