What does travel and exploring the world mean to you?
It means living your life to the fullest. Seizing life on earth. You haven’t truly lived until you have traveled – I seriously believe that. Do you want to simply exist or LIVE? Living takes courage and means you have to set your fears aside and see what you are made of. To travel is to challenge and find yourself in your truest form. A bit intense, yes, but it’s true.
Where are you from, where did you go to college & what did you major in at college?
I’m from a little bit of everywhere…I grew up on Long Island, NY until I was 10 and have since lived in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, and …Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
I have a BA in Visual Anthropology from Temple University in Philadelphia and an MA in Education from Marian University in Indianapolis.
