What's included in this starter course?
Hey! I'm Gabby Beckford, am a Travel and Opportunity Expert, and founder of Packs Light.
I've been awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships, grants, funded cultural exchanges, etc., and have used them to travel to countries like the UAE 🇦🇪, South Korea 🇰🇷, Austria 🇦🇹, and Fiji 🇫🇯 and more completely free*.
Plus, PTOs have helped me:
- have once-in-a-lifetime experiences
- expand my network
- improve my professional resume
- start my career as a travel influencer
- gain free flight miles and travel points
- save hard-earned money
And I can teach you to do the same, too!
*Work ethic, not included.
