Describe the Impact of a Project you’re focused on.

I am empowering people to travel more - allowing mothers to not be held back by the challenges of flying with kids, letting budget travelers to earn money while they fly and thus not be held back by financial constraints. I’m easing anxiety for elderly travelers by finding them an in-flight companion.

What results do you hope for when the impact is amplified?

Bringing the world together by having people help one another

What do you have to offer as a connector? What can you give as expertise to others?

I love helping people so am happy to do so however I can.
