Who the Heck is Zed?

IMG_3870       I am!

My name is Zach (Zed). I’m currently a student at Brigham Young University studying wildlife and wildland conservation. The dream is to work in a national or state park somewhere. Basically anywhere that doesn’t require me to be behind a desk my whole life.

Shortly after my 23rd birthday I got pretty sick with some weird symptoms and not long after I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. Life since then has been full of ups and downs as I not only learn what that means for me, but learn what it means to not let a diagnosis define who I am and who I want to be.

Coping is a lot of self reflection, honesty, and a constant attempt to find the positive no matter what is thrown my way and I hope to maybe help others who are experiencing their own trials to be able to remember that there’s always a silver lining.

Keep that yoyo spinning.

  1. Zach, this is Pedro Guevara (Pedro’s dad). I just wanted to say hello and thank you for being my son’s friend. you were a great example to him. Keep it up, and keep traveling.



    1. Thanks Pedro! I really have appreciated having your son as a friend in my life as well. I just spoke to him today, and while that’s the first time in several months that we’ve really spoken, I’m grateful that I have the type of friend that we are just able to pick up and go no matter where we are or how long it’s been. It’s been a real blessing. I hope you and your family are doing well.
