Merrilyn is a junior studying Business, Accounting and Religion. She grew up in Singapore, which is arguably the most concrete of jungles. She is thus probably the last person you would expect to hike but she really does love it – there is something about nature that never ceases to amaze and make one feel free. Having never done anything like it before, Merrilyn jumped on the chance to go on a hiking trip with SCOutfitters to Yosemite last Fall. It changed her life. She experienced a sense of awe and wonderment she had never felt before, and she just stood atop the mountain taking it all in. Above is the picture that captures that defining moment. Merrilyn has gone on to recreate this moment by going on multiple hikes along the West Coast. For those still searching but not knowing what it is they are looking for, look no further. There is so much more to life than what you already know. She can’t wait for you to experience the magic of the mountains (and the oceans) for yourselves.
