Christy Moorhead

"I fought an iguana in Costa Rica that attacked my daughter – for her pizza."

Crystel Figaro

Deanna Del Vecchio

"I hitched a ride on a jeep in the Qatari desert."

Hannah Heinson

" While on an overnight ferry from Greece to Italy I went to a party, I was excited to go until I saw that the only people there were my friends and elderly truck drivers. "

Hongyi Liu

"During my first trip on an airplane (age 5), I accidentally locked myself in the washroom. After the crew spent 10 mins tearing it apart, I somehow managed to unlock the door."

Allison Kavanagh
