I have often thanked you, Semester at Sea thru various social medias for taking care of my beautiful, Kassie Braun on her voyage of a lifetime. While she didn't quite make it all the way around the world, I know without a doubt her spirit and love of life and others has resonated around the world; and for that, I will say a final thank you.

Thank you for seeing her safely from Germany to Spain, Spain to Ghana, Ghana to South Africa, South Africa to India, and finally India to Myanmar.

Even though Kassie's voyage on Earth ended in Myanmar, I know without a doubt she will continue on in spirit with all her shipmates to Vietnam, China, Japan and all the way around to Hawaii and San Diego, USA.

Bon Voyage, MV World Odyssey, Kassandra Braun is flying high, guiding you all with love and light.

Kassandra “Kassie” Arielle Braun lived a vibrant life but also rejoiced in life’s simple pleasures. Like the simple and “little way” modeled by her chosen confirmation Saint Therese of Lisieux, the “Little Flower”.  Her life serves as an example for all of us to do little things with great love. Kassie embodied otherness versus selfishness and never met a stranger. In her short life, Kassie’s boundless soul eagerly traveled the world to touch as many people as she could with her joy and love. Like Kassie, we can give of our time, heart, treasure to help people in need of a smiling face, a warm meal, a hug, a roof over their head, a scholarship to travel the world and meet people far and wide and be an ambassador of love as Kassie was.
