Meet A Campus Rep: A Touch Of Wanderlust

Devin McLaughlin – Georgia State University
I'm pursuing a Master's of International Business. I'm a musician, entrepreneur, and avid outdoorsman.
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!
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.
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!

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.
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.
If I could travel anywhere (without thinking about money), I would go to Australia in a heartbeat!
