Thor is proof that you don’t have to grow up by the ocean to choose a career that will take you to sea.

Thor is sending some Barbados sunshine to students from Tennessee who are participating in the Follow The Voyage-Share The Experience Program.  He also would like to give a shoutout to all of the students following from other states who live in states that are far from the ocean, but are still dreaming of a career at sea.
