His motivated spirit and determination took care of the rest. Thibault wants to make sure this experience in India is unforgettable for all involved.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Erwan</strong> likes to push his limits, whether it’s by going to med school or running a marathon. A natural adventurer, he will navigate the team through India with his carefully planned itinerary. He is also going through every travel guide he can get his hands on in the hope of finding spice-free food. Erwan’s good mood will keep spirits soaring throughout the month.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Charles</strong> is our money-savvy communications and finance coordinator. Whether negotiating the price for a rickshaw, or keeping track of all of our costs, Charles will get us the most out of our time and money, while keeping a sense of humour. His force of will, good sense of relations and flexibility to improvise always lead him to discover new experiences.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Alexis</strong> is an always-on-the-road kind of a guy. Whether he’s practicing graphics design and modern languages in Paris, studying creative writing, film and cultural studies in Canada or working with Burmese refugees in Thailand, Alexis seeks to understand other cultures and gather stories. He’s in charge of all things graphics and visual for the project.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Team" src=""></p>
