UNC seniors Emily Shaljian, Ross DiBetta and Molly Crosswell are hoping to go on the biennial challenge, "Red Bull Can You Make It," set in early May.  The competition flies selected teams to one of five cities in Europe. From there, each team must travel to Berlin without money or personal phones. For seven days, they are reliant solely on 24 cans of Red Bull as currency.

A week-long trip traveling throughout Europe in the summer sure sounds lovely. But what if you had seven days to travel to Berlin without money or personal phones, and could only use 24 cans of Red Bull as currency? Meet the UNC seniors hoping to participate in the "Red Bull Can You Make It?" competition.
