"This last summer (summer of 2008) I went on a life-changing journey called Girls on Ice. The Girls on Ice program was an inspirational and eye-opening experience that my 16 year old self was lucky to be a part of! From mountaineering and glaciology to self endurance and team work, the lessons I learned and the memories I have made are unforgettable. I not only learned how to walk on glaciers, rescue myself from crevasses, climb on ice with crampons, and summit a mountain but I also learned how far I could push myself in different and extreme situations. The leaders of the program were perfectly fit for their roles and inspired me to push myself and follow my dreams. I not only ended the program with a head full of knowledge and experience but with 8 new friendships!!! Whenever I am asked about this program I have nothing but remarkable comments and memories to share with them!"
