Sasha DiGiulian on college and the Arco Rock Legend award
After graduating from high school, I devoted one year to just focusing on my climbing career, simultaneously traveling the world for both international competitions and to climb outside. The year was amazing. I learned a lot, both about myself and about the world that we live in. For example, the world is huge (I’ve learned from accumulating thousands of frequent flier miles), but there are also many cultural parallels and social intersections that shrink the scope of it all. I have found these overlapping similarities most intriguing.
