“I believe that the world today needs more understanding and tolerance. The best way to achieve that is through traveling and experiencing each other’s differences and similarities so we can learn from each other. It is therefore a pleasure and privilege for me to be able to connect people to not only unique experiences through the universal language of sports, but simultaneously, at least in my own opinion, make the world a better place by connecting the world one athlete at a time! Our athletes not only get to pursue their ambition, they are also a piece of a bigger puzzle where they enable themselves to pursue a purpose.”
