About Kyra Halpenny
She is passionate about self-expression (in her writing and photography), global awareness (fed by repeated exposure to life outside the US), and the ability to unite people through common interests and goals. Kyra participated in a Global Glimpse trip to Nicaragua and has been actively involved in the organization ever since. She also led a bullying awareness campaign in her community. She believes in the power of kindness, and that the quiet make the most noise. Kyra intends to use this adventure to broaden her world perspective, and allow her to become a more thoughtful global citizen. She also feels this program will give her the opportunity to continue to convey her thoughts in her chosen mediums - writing and visual.
