Global Degree seeking member

Canadian entrants are encouraged to submit a creative two-to-three-minute video, sharing why they want a global degree

Any North Okanagan residents wanting to spread their wings and travel the world could claim that chance with Global Degree.

The adventure series includes Vancouver-based trio Michael Graziano, Alex Hennessy and Natalia Anja obtaining their Global Degree by visiting every country in the world.

Last year, Anja was chosen as the first woman to join the team. She was one of more than 70 contestants, including Vernon’s own Kristin Foord.

Now, the team is searching for a fourth member as it’s about to take-off for season two in the spring.

Anyone interested in earning a degree without spending four years in a classroom can enter for the chance to set foot in every country (195) in just 60 months.

Lauren Beck, a UBC Okanagan fourth year anthropology student  in Kelowna, has entered for her second year in a row as she is ready to see, visit and experience the cultures she has studied.

“I’ve always been fascinated with cultures and I’m ready to go explore what I’ve never seen before,” said Buck, formerly of Penticton, in her video.

There is no age or gender specifications for the winner who will have their all expenses paid, upcoming eight-month journey to 50 European countries this spring.

Canadian entrants are encouraged to submit a creative two-to-three-minute video, sharing why they want a global degree and how they’d contribute to the team.

All videos will be viewable to the public on GlobalDegree.TV and voted for on via social media.

The deadline to submit is Jan. 30.
