Inspirational Women

7-23-17: Aspen Matis, Girl in the Woods, A Memoir, Pacific Crest Trail,

Aspen Matis is an incredibly inspiring and courageous young woman. Hers is an important story–for all of us, but right now particularly for young women, young people getting ready for college, and for their parents. In 2008 on her second day of college, Aspen was raped. Months later her self-prescription was to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, 2600 miles from Mexico to Canada, solo, 11 pounds on her back. ‘ Girl in the Woods a memoir’ tells her raw and brave story.
