As the world continues in our near standstill with travel completely unfeasible still, I wanted to you update you on why I decided to create this website and YouTube channel.
First, let's talk a bit about my personal history. I grew up in a very small town in Connecticut. As I finished up high school, I realized that I needed to get out of that type of climate. I was hungry for much more. I attended university not far away from there and obtained degrees related to culinary arts and services management. Having a background in food services really opened up my mind to learning out the many cultures of this world. I was very shy and reserved as a child, though the college experience definitely helped me break out of my shell.
Since finishing up my degrees, I have so far moved across state lines several times. I have been a resident of Rhode Island, South Carolina, Florida, California (and now holding over in Washington state throughout the Covid pandemic.)
I do not regret any of my choices for locations to live. I have gained so many great memories, met many amazing people and have learned so much about myself in each new home. The one constant is every time I face time to move again, I am always met with perplexity from those around me.
This brings us to my reason for sharing my journey. I would love for everyone to believe in themselves and chase their dreams. I hope my story leads to inspiration for anyone out there thinking of a change in scenery, looking to explore the world and maybe just a little hesitant to try something new. My biggest piece of advice is to do it.. get out there!
