As a young child, I was orphaned from my father.
My mother did a wonderful job raising me and my siblings by herself, but growing up without a father, had a major impact on how I view things, I wasn’t molded by someone else, I had to think for myself and find my own way.
I was always fascinated by the world and enjoyed exploring how things work, how cultures evolved and the differences between nations. As a child, I had a large globe in my bedroom. I used to imagine myself exploring all these different places.
Besides being a prolific mountain climber, adventurist and travel enthusiast, I am also a content creator and vlogger. I uniquely document my travel all in Yiddish.
Making a goal and stating it to everyone is very effective in every area in life, I stated my goal to visit every state in the USA and eventually every country in the world, this ensures that I push ahead in doing the things I enjoy. It helps to quantify my achievements and makes it more meaningful.
