In the words of the legendary Marvin Gaye “Ain’t no mountain high enough… to keep me from getting to you…” UWCSEA alumnus and longtime college supporter Mikael Morn is moving mountains to ensure more scholars of promise and potential benefit from a life-changing UWCSEA education. Mikael set himself the ambitious challenge of scaling not one but THREE of the world’s most remote peaks in just two short weeks – whilst raising money for a fully funded scholarship at UWCSEA. What’s more, he’s matching donations – ensuring a double impact from funds raised.
It’s an ambitious test of physical endurance driven by a tremendous passion and belief in the UWC mission. But nearly two-thirds of the way in, Mikael looks on track to reach his goal. He’s already summited Mount Damavand in Iran on 28th August, and Mount Demirkazik in Turkey on the 1st September. Follow his blog and join Mikael, albeit virtually, climbing the final peak, Mount Elbrus in Russia.
As he embarks on this final ascent we hope he can hear the thunderous applause and heartfelt cheers of gratitude from the UWCSEA community – all the way from Singapore to Russia with love.
