Beginning this December, Terence Steinberg is competing as a solo rower in the Atlantic Challenge, a 3,000-mile rowing ocean race from La Gomera, Spain to Antigua in the Caribbean.
Terence will row more than twelve hours per day for up to three months without seeing another soul. The motivation? To pay forward his UWC education and show that the world is smaller than we think.
More people have visited outer space
and climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic solo.
Attending a UWC is like rowing an ocean:
students discover their potential is far larger,
and the world much smaller, than many commonly believe
UWC pushes students beyond their comfort and into a world of deep transformation: a world where peace is possible, where humans are far more alike than different, and by working together, we can achieve anything. Repaying the gifts Terence received through his UWC experience would be impossible, but through the UWC Challenge he intends to pay them forward.
United World Challenge is a collaboration among UWC alumni, partners, and the public to join together to raise new scholarships while sharing UWC’s story with the world.
