My name is Heidi and I'm from Wisconsin, United States. Every time I travel abroad and meet citizens of a different country, I feel a bridge has been built. The connections I make with others are priceless and always a good teaching moment for me.

I hope to continue with this in Mexico this year. I got into this area late in the game, but have every hope that I can still make a difference in the lives of others, as well as my own, through giving back, hard work and a little bit of luck!
