Event Image WEB Presents: "How - and why - to travel around the world" a lecture by Andy Stoll
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus
*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

After college Andy Stoll set off on a 4-year, 40-country solo trip around-the-world. Andy went in search of experiences far off-the-beaten, 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 Mt Kilimanjaro with 10 Tanzanian street kids. Andy’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, its 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.
