|6:30 pm Mar 22nd||Andy Stoll, entrpreneur, media director, world traveler; Speaks at Cornell Thomas Commons|
Join Andy Stoll in Hedges as he leads a session on "How (and Why) To Travel Around The World" on Tuesday, March 22nd. After college Stoll set off on a four-year, 40-country solo trip around the world. Stoll went in search of experiences far off the beaten path to get a better understanding of how the world works. He handed out micro-loans in China; played a 19th Century British soldier in a Bollywood movie; worked in a dress factory in Bangkok for 60 cents an hour; lived in a mud hut village in Zambia and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with 10 Tanzanian street kids.
Stoll's message to students is clear: the distance between who you are and who you want to become is closer than you think. Andy's presentation is much more than a travel slideshow, it's an insightful, inspiring, entertaining, and often hilarious look at what it takes to find our place in the world and to achieve our biggest dreams—whether that is to travel the world, or something a little closer to home.
