A Coast to Coast Walk Across America
Thank you for joining us!
Levi ~ Hello, I'm Levi Stiles and I recently graduated with a degree in philosophy from UCDavis. I plan on walking across America in hopes of developing new relationships and experiencing this country's natural beauty. I am always looking for an alternative, a new way, or a fresh perspective and this has created an extremely rich existence for me. I began planning this trip six months ago; having gifted away almost everything I owned, I was able to focus what I felt was really important. I was fortunate enough to convince Shikira in coming with me, and have been putting together this magnificent trip ever since.
Shikira ~ Full name is Shikira Marie Tierra Severson, but the nicknames are endless. I love my home town (Santa Cruz), the beach, good food, fun music, and laughs. I am an honest person with a heart for people, hence my pursuing a B.S. in Human Development at UC Davis. I am a member, and was Chapter President, of the Theta Pi chapter of Alpha Chi Omega. I graduate on June 17th and will fly to New York City two weeks after to begin a much anticipated adventure. Levi's initial invitation to come along the trek across America was easy to deny. However, my desire to travel is not yet satisfied, and Levi's thoughtful planning and ideas soon convinced me. How could I pass up such an opportunity? Thinking about the landscapes, the cities, the people, the challenge, and the developing pride for such a beautiful home country captured me. I am thankful to begin our wonderful journey!
