About Me

UPDATE: At the moment I’m traveling through Eastern Europe / Balkans, but I’m also currently awaiting my work visa for Kuwait, but due to COVID it is taking a while so I’m taking the time to explore the beautiful countries here. I understand hosting during these unprecedented times isn’t ideal. I still like to meet and interact with locals because it really gives me an authentic experience and helps me understand the culture and life so I’d be more than happy to meet up with locals for a meal or even to explore a little.

I grew up in the finger lakes region of New York which is known for some of the best wine in the United States. I'm from New York, but far off from what you picture when you think New York. I plan on pursuing a degree in nursing when I finally decide to start studying. My ultimate goal is to become a travel nurse. That way I can combine helping people and traveling together, if I can do that then I will be content.

Teach, Learn, Share

“I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met.” - John Green

If there is one thing I genuinely believe in it's that quote. I constantly find myself reminiscing of all the places I've been and dreaming of all the places I've never been. They say there are nearly 8 billion people in the world. I think of all the interesting and hospitable people I've met along my journey so far and then I think back to that number and realize I really haven't even met 1% of the people in the world. To me it is so mind-blowing to know that there are places and people out there so interesting, yet I'll never have the chance to meet and converse with. Everyone has their own story in this world and everyone is unique in their own way all living out their lives in a respectable and unique way.

I'll politely welcome any conversation no matter how long, how short, or how crazy it may sound. To me a story is knowledge in one way or another and everyone I've met to this day has been a teacher to me in one way or another.
