Named one of MTV's "Social Media Warriors of 2016", <a href="http://www.TBCMikah.com" target="_hplink">Mikah Meyer</a> is a <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mWbbKnOSkw" target="_hplink">professional singer</a>, <a href="https://youtu.be/oTHGDHO2BrU?t=6m50s" target="_hplink">musical improv performer</a>, and <a href="http://www.TBCmikah.com" target="_hplink">travel personality</a> currently driving around America on a world record journey to all 417 national parks. His debut memoir, <u><a href="http://www.tbcmikah.com/book" target="_hplink">Life’s More Fun When You Talk to Strangers</a></u>, is based on a 260 day, 16,400 mile North American road trip and the power of audacious risks. Earning a Masters in Voice Performance from McGill University in Montreal, Mikah grew up in Nebraska as the pastor’s son at America’s largest Lutheran campus ministry. He's since worked for a number of denominations as a singer, educator and young-adult ministry leader--most recently with the professional choirs at the Washington National Cathedral. He is the founder and president-emeritus of <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/QFCDC" target="_hplink">Queer For Christ</a>, the world's largest, in-person LGBT/Christian young adult organization. Mikah's national parks project is making him both the youngest person to experience all 400+ U.S. parks and the only person to accomplish the feat in one journey. The trip launched on the <a href="https://roadtrippers.com/stories/experience-your-dream-journey-today" target="_hplink">anniversary of his father's passing</a>, during the 100th anniversary year of the National Park Service, and marks the 12th installment of annual road trips--begun at age 19--to honor his father's love of driving.
