If I asked you to think of an adventurer, what comes to mind?

For Sue growing up in Edinburgh, adventure was something reserved for men, particularly men with a lot of resources. But then something happened, Sue was selected to undertake a Raleigh Expedition to Kenya. This experience shifted Sue’s perception of what an adventurer is.

Being an adventurer shouldn’t have anything to do with your class, gender, ethnicity or any other physical or societal characteristic, but it does have everything to do with your mindset.
