HOST Amy Purdy

 

One year. One woman. Seven amazing continents, and an enabled journey around the
world.
What does it mean to experience the world fully? To journey to far away lands and
distant countries, to connect with the people and places and things you imagined only in
your dreams? For Amy Purdy, she always knew she wanted the freedom that came with
exploration, to see her daydreams and imagination become reality, to touch, feel and smell places bigger than
herself. But when she lost both her legs at age 19, suddenly that dream was at risk, and the adventure seemed
impossible. But life sometimes shows us our biggest lessons in our biggest challenge, and enables us to do so
much more than we ever thought possible. Follow along as Amy sets out on the journey of a lifetime, to see all
seven continents, and taste, touch, feel and smell everything she always imagined she’d see. And find out how
what many would perceive as a disability, is actually the ability that allows her to connect to humans all across
the globe. Demographics: Next Gen, Millennial/ Non Core/Female + Disability/Travel, Exploration, Adventure,
