Location: AN05 Virtual
How do your greatest talents solve the world’s greatest problems? How can you design a career that follows your own path? And how do you turn your weaknesses into strengths? These are just a few of the questions world-record-setting adventurer, Mikah Meyer, takes audiences on a journey to answer through his multimedia, humor-infused presentations. Whether through the lens of his 3-year trek to all 419 National Park Service sites, a road trip to visit "every Facebook Friend,” or other epic adventures that turn dreams into reality, Meyer uses travel as a medium to show how every person can use their unique traits to make impossible goals: possible. Having put himself through college before reaching these dreams, Meyer is candid about creative ways to fund epic projects, and also discusses the genesis of his travels coming from the premature loss of his father to cancer—turning tragedy into triumph. Whether it’s living the #VanLife dream, using Instagram to start a movement, or breaking stereotypes across professions, Meyer shares real life travelogues that inspire anyone who’s ever felt less-than, to see that they can be both “ordinary, and extraordinary!”
