My name is Brandy Smith and I am a member of BEYOND LIMITS. I just got involved this fall and am already immersed in the project. Hiking the Appalachian Trail is an experience that many people take advantage of to find themselves. So I caught myself thinking, who needs to find themselves most?
Time. It’s a funny thing really. We all have the same amount of it: yet some of us seem to have too much of it and others don’t seem to have enough. I fall into the latter category. I’m constantly one step ahead of where I am, planning, figuring, creating and playing out the nextRead More

Hi, my name is Meghan Legassie and I am a third year student at the University of Maine at Presque Isle. I am majoring in professional communication and journalism. I have always loved writing, so why not pick a major that includes what I love and find myself doing in my spare time?

Have you ever wanted to be part of something great? Do you want to reach out to people and help them to discover their awesomeness? Have you discovered all the amazing things that you can do yourself – including the ones you didn’t think you could?
Back in fall 2015 when we decided to hike the Appalachian Trail in 2017, we realized that it would be good to do some practice hiking.
