I have always been a traveler. It started with road trips to the Smokey Mountains when I bought my first car at 16. It led me to tackle Tourism as a major at my university and take winter jobs in Colorado.
I had never been out of North America or Central America and decided it wasn't enough anymore. During my senior year, I saved all my money for a two-week trip to China. I spent time wandering amongst the skyscrapers in Shanghai and hiked along the Li River -- I fell in love.
