My experience at the WTCW cannot be recreated. In just a couple days and only miles down the street from my home, I felt like I had opened up a weekend chapter from a semester abroad on another continent. The experiences were intense and compact and the bonds I built with the other women are lifelong. Not only did I learn a new skill set that makes me competitive and hirable in a male dominated industry, but I left invigorated, strong, and alive.
The women running the program are some of the greatest teachers and role models I’ve ever met and their patience and diligence for safety helps even women with fear of heights reach the top of the canopy. There is nothing greater than listening to the breeze and voices below while looking out at the world over the tree tops. I want every woman to have the chance to experience this, even if she doesn’t realize how incredible it is until she is up there.
