She is open minded, and participate, lending a hand where ever she can, and constantly using her curiosity to learn more.
She thinks the Koch Cup will offer a cultural exchange and the opportunity to gain new friends, and she would like to offer up her own experiences, as well as learning from others. For her it is about the community, having fun, and learning both about scouting, racing and challenging myself.
