Hello, I'm Nichole, AT class of 2016! I walked from Georgia to Maine (4/25-9/22) to test my limits and strength, to be a badass, and to show myself that if I can do this, I can do absolutely anything... and also raised $2,500 for clean water in the process. Summer of 2017 will find me backpacking the Mini Triple Crown: Long Trail, Colorado Trail, and John Muir Trail. I'm currently living in northern NJ with my incredibly supportive and non-hiking husband, working multiple jobs to fund my mountain addiction, and working on my new website, do-anything.com. You can also see what I'm up to on Instagram, @nicholeyoung1.
