Ask me about...

  • How to reduce costs while traveling
  • Different ideas of ways to travel the globe
  • Different work opportunities

Highlights from my gap year:

  • Working in Mexico as a Project Supervisor for an intercultural exchange program, called Amigos de las Américas
  • Backpacking around Costa Rica, Panama, and Nicaragua and staying with host families (many of which were either families of my friends, or families with whom I had previously lived)
  • Traveling around 5 different islands in Indonesia through a gap year program called Where There be Dragons
  • Interning and learning Portuguese in Brazil
  • Hiking the Camino de Santiago, Via de la Plata, in Spain.
