June 2019 – The Vice President of Soldiers for Wildlife Michael Carroll reached out to me to help them with the launch of their digital marketing campaign. Their goal was to revamp their website and social media accounts with new informational videos and photography.
Michael introduced me to John Garcia, founder of Soldiers for Wildlife. After about 10 minutes of talking to him I knew I wanted help be a part of their anti-poaching initiative. Then they asked me if I would go with him and Michael to Zambia and South Africa. I said,
“Hell yeah I want to go, but I should probably run this by my fiancé and parents.”
About two weeks and four vaccination shots later I was boarding South African Airways out of New York City with Michael and John. Our first destination was Lusaka, Zambia to visit Chaminuka Lodge.
