<a href="/author/noa-bridson/"><strong>CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT NOA'S BLOG</strong></a> Noa enjoys the way light dapples through a forest canopy, drinking warm tea by a fire and watching strangers smile. She loves to pretend that she knows how to dance, run until she forgets anything else exists and draw portraits from National Geographic articles. She has a passion for the environment and has been named one of Canada's top youth environmentalists for her community work in this area. For the last two years she has lived and learned with students from over 90 different countries at Lester B. Pearson College in Victoria, Canada. Noa enjoys seeing the world through other's eyes and has come to realize that every challenge is an opportunity for growth in disguise. Noa is a sea kayaking instructor and serves as a leader of a community interfaith group. She plans to attend the University of British Columbia and study "Environment and Sustainability". She is inspired by the idealism and passion of other youth her age and looks forward to learning the unforeseen lessons Ecuador has to teach her.

When Adventure Calls

Here I am sitting in a complete foreign city, crunched in a ball because of "traveler's stomach", feeling lost in culture I don't know and stifled by a language I can't speak. Yet if you asked me how I feel I would answer without hesitation…
