My name is Aubrey Denico, and I am a rising junior at Bonny Eagle high school in Standish, ME. I love doing all types of sports and activities spanning from hiking in the summer to skiing in the winter or taking a break from the physical stuff to watch a movie or, play a game. If I’m not doing sports or relaxing I am usually looking at stuff that affects my future such as looking at colleges (online or in real life) or studying math and science which are my favorite subjects. I haven’t done many events like Wheeling for the World before or done anything with Seeds of Peace, but it’s never too late to start especially when my first opportunity is going to be scootering around at the speed of sound.
Say hello to our new team member Irha Nadeem (Camper 2013)
Irha (Camper 2013) joined Seeds of Peace as a Pakistani delegate in 2013 and has been associated with Seeds of Peace since then, participating in a number of follow-up programs. She is currently studying Chartered Accounting from Institute of Chartered Accountants Pakistan. Seeds of Peace was never just a camp for her. It has been her second home, where she has a feeling of belonging. It has been a life changing experience for her, teaching her the true meaning of leadership, coexistence, empathy, harmony as well as building everlasting friendships from all around the world. Seeds of Peace taught her to be emphatically, mentally and emotionally strong.
Say hello to our new team member Moose, (Camper in 2006, counselor 2012-2014, camp music director 2015-2016, head counselor 2017 & the Egyptian program manager).
Moose is also a writer, beatboxer, percussionist and DJ. Had it not been for Seeds Moose probably wouldn’t have went on to discover what it means to creatively express ones self. Moose believes in self-expression as a means to emotional freedom. Art, music, writing, dance, sport whatever it is that one can use to express themselves is a tool for that freedom. Moose believes that this is our way of expressing how awesome, impactful and cool Seeds of Peace is. It’s never just about politics, Seeds is a place of expression and impact through creativity, dreaming and manifesting the craziest ideas to a reality. “Let’s break a Guinness book of world records as an organization on our 25th anniversary!” Some of you know Moose with really long hair, but for this challenge he decided to take some of that weight off. Expect a new moose, the one dread moose!
Say hello to our new team member Gingit (Seeds Camper 2010, PS in 2012 & Counselor 18).
Gingit (Inbal) has been part of the Seeds of Peace family since 2010. Being a camper made Gingit want to make a bigger impact on people around her. Processing her experience at camp she came to an understanding what a powerful tool education is. That fact lead to working and volunteering in different communities, leading activities, supporting youth, attempting to understand different communities better this way. Seeds has had such an extensive effect on her life choices that made her love for Seeds grow- later becoming a PS and counselor. Another big passion of hers is traveling- returning from a 5 month backpacking trip in Eastern Africa, coming home straight to camp.
Gingit is super exited to do everything and anything for Seeds of Peace, but breaking a Guinness world record is something she never even thought of. That’s why she is so exited to be part of this amazing group of people.
Say hello to our new team member Sahra (Seeds Camper 2013, Counselor 18).
Sahra was a camper way back in 2013 and will be a counselor for Seeds of Peace this summer. Since going to seeds, she has gained a greater sense of understanding various social injustices and the many ways in which we can advocate to dismantle and bridge the gaps between varying communities. Seeds has given her the courage to speak her truths and take the lessons that she has learned from them to her university. In doing this, she has helped to better educate, understand, and create a greater awareness of the inequalities that many face. This journey of understanding the experiences of others has taken her all over the world and introduced her to some beautiful souls. her experience with speaking to people and getting a glimpse of their truths is why she has joined Wheeling for the World’s advisory committee. She wants to continue being a part of Seeds and this record-breaking attempt seems like a great opportunity to bridge gaps, create connections with more Seeds, and have loads of FUN.
So you watched the launch vid (which was viewed by 25k (!) Seeps =Seed Peeps) and got all excited about W4W. But then you thought about it for a while and realized that you may not be able to attend the Guinness World Record event right after camp in Maine. You may have thought to yourselves “I wanna be part of this, but just not on a scooter…. Hmmm, I wish there was a way…”
Well, GREAT news! We have paved one, and it’s waiting for you to jump on it!
This application is aimed for Seeps just like you, who want to help out, want to be part of the decision making process, want to have a stake in this adventure that we’ve set out on together with SOP, for SOP.
We’ve been working tirelessly on this wild adventure because we truly believe that this attempt is bound to bring our global community closer as we all push each other to the max to achieve this record in a collaborative way. We shall all be an additional attest, that cooperation is possible when we commit ourselves to the core.
