Field Notes: Volume 1, Issue 2

Dear Friends,

One of the best parts of my work with WINGS WorldQuest is when I get to notify a new Fellow or Flag Carrier of her award. This month I got to award a WINGS flag to a new member of our international community: Janey McGill. She wrote about accepting the award here on her blog.

Janey will walk 1,000 km of Oman's Rub' Al Khali, a desert spanning four countries across the Arabian Peninsula, to explore cultural differences between our lives and relationships within a tribal country which until only 48 years ago had only several schools and no infrastructure. We can’t wait to share with you what she discovers along the journey.

We are also pleased to share the video recording of the Fellows Forum. That link, as well as lots of other news from WINGS Fellows and Flag Carriers, are in this month's newsletter. Enjoy!

We'll see you on the trail, at the destination, and beyond.

All the best,

Yael Jekogian
Managing Director
