Meet A Campus Rep: A Touch Of Wanderlust

Devin McLaughlin – Georgia State University

1. Tell us a little about yourself…
I'm pursuing a Master's of International Business. I'm a musician, entrepreneur, and avid outdoorsman.

2. Why did you decide to get involved with ESPEROS?
I heard about ESPEROS when I was looking at the Startup America website. I was drawn to the positive impact that providing education to impoverished children could have, so I emailed them immediately. Now I'm a Campus Rep!

3. What does education mean to you? Why is it important?
Education is the road that leads us to our future selves. I know everyday I'm learning more while attending classes, and the
knowledge I've gained has molded me into the person I am today.

4. If you could hop on a plane tomorrow and travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
If I could hop on a plane tomorrow, I'd go to Santiago, Chile. I've heard amazing things about it, and I hope to live there one day!


Kayla Sanford – Oklahoma State University

1. Tell us a little about yourself, Kayla.
I am from Arkadelphia, Arkansas but I decided to move west to attend Oklahoma State University. I am here studying zoology and I hope to become a veterinarian. My hobbies are photography, playing the piano, and rock climbing.

2. Why did you decide to get involved with ESPEROS?
I decided to get involved with ESPEROS because I think it is a great program and an amazing idea: one backpack for one child's education.

3. What does education mean to you? Why is it important?
Education is really important in today's world because it fuels progress and it is one of the most foundational things on which you build a civilization. I believe that education opens doors to new opportunities and allows people another way to communicate ideas, further develop existing skills, and broaden their general knowledge base. Providing access to an education, at no cost to the families in need, is amazing and I am glad to be a small part of the big picture.

4. If you could hop on a plane tomorrow and travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
If I could travel anywhere (without thinking about money), I would go to Australia in a heartbeat!
