The Winterline Global Skills Gap Year Program travels to 10 different countries over 9 months, where students learn 100 new life skills while traveling the world with their best friends.
Thinking about taking a gap year too?
THE CONCEPT OF A GAP YEAR PROGRAM IS STILL NEW FOR MANY STUDENTS. WHEN WERE YOU FIRST INTRODUCED TO THE IDEA OF TAKING A GAP YEAR?
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO TAKE A GAP YEAR?
I chose to take a gap year because the idea of college didn’t seem right to me because I have no clue what I want to do with my life. I chose Winterline because I loved the idea of learning a little bit of everything and traveling all over.
WHAT SKILL ARE YOU MOST EXCITED TO LEARN?
I am most excited to learn mixology and scuba diving.
DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO IN THE FUTURE?
I don’t know what I want to do in the future, but I know I want to help people and try and make the world a better place.
HAVE YOU TRAVELED BEFORE? IF SO, WHICH TRIP HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY?
I have been to 15 different states and Jamaica. My favorite trip I have been on is every year a group of my friends and I drive up to Wisconsin for church camp.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO GAIN FROM YOUR GAP YEAR PROGRAM AND WHILE TRAVELING ABROAD?
I hope to get an idea of what I want to do with my life, and also not only get to learn new skills but to learn more about myself.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WANT YOUR FUTURE WINTERLINE PEERS TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I am really fun, outgoing and I love trying new things. I am super excited to meet everyone.
TELL US SOMETHING FUN ABOUT YOU!
I have a twin sister.
