Jennifer & Alan Flemming  (Solo Pilot)
"As for why the project speaks to me, it has a lot to do with my ending up with two new toasters this year. Yes I like toast a lot, and sure there's a fairly reasonable explanation (one's a toaster oven,) but I realized at some point that nobody really needs two toasters.

We have so much luxury and comfort in our lives that not everybody shares, and I want to learn how to spread that around. And, with the state of politics in the US turning so many people inward and away from each other, I was compelled to reach out somewhere totally new to expand my world and my connections.

I smile most when I'm flying or traveling, and from what I've seen so far Malawians smile most of the time no matter what, so it seems a natural combination.

I've started practicing Chichewa, and one of the first websites I found list four different ways to say I am happy! That's reason enough for me."

Newer to the paragliding community, Lorraine is a Canadian-born proud mother of three and grandmother of one. She began paragliding at the age of 48, proving that anything is possible if you set your mind to it.  She has been a tandem passenger for over 5 years, and is working on perfecting her skills as a solo pilot. Though she is not able to teach yet, she can mentor and assist in any ground handling!  An adventurer by nature, Lorraine is happiest when discovering and exploring new places and things. She is a self-taught cook, a seamstress, and a creative young soul. She will be joining The School of Dreams team to help show other men and women that it is never too late to start chasing a dream.  [group:image:22832][group:image:22831][group:image:22833][group:image:22835][group:image:22836][group:image:22837]
