About Me

I graduated with a biochemistry degree from the University of Florida (go gators!) in 2013 and I will start medical school in 2017, so I am getting my traveling in now :)
I just left France after au pairing for 10 months (and learning a bit of French haha) and now I'm traveling Southeast Asia until October!
