Introduce yourself! Tell us a little bit about your goals and interests:

I love to travel! I haven’t been many places but I want to see 30 countries by age 30 – since I’m only at 7, I better hustle. My interests include listening to music by ex Disney Channel stars, embarrassing myself in public, & celebrating Christmas all year round. You should know that I’m constantly thinking about food, eating food, anxiously awaiting food, & I have a not-so-secret love of grocery shopping. If I’m being honest, my life goals are up in the air right now but I’m working on figuring myself out. All I can say for certain, is that in the future I want to be happy and I want to makes other people’s lives a little easier (so if anyone knows what the job title is for that PLEASE let me know).

Have you ever traveled overseas before? If so, where?

Yes! I’ve been to Greece, Italy, Belgium & Switzerland.

What 3 things MUST you take with you while abroad?

1. Sightseeing Playlist

2. Map (way cheaper than an international data plan)

3. Snacks

What are you most looking forward to?

I’m most looking forward to meeting so many new people, visiting surrounding countries and getting to live somewhere new and exciting!
