For the longest time, I was against blogging. I was uninterested in it. It felt like it was posting an online journal and I am usually a private, introverted person. But then came the discovery of Tumblr. I’ve seen posts from my friends and classmates, and I thought, "Wow, Tumblr definitely has a twist to blogging, in a good way." You can speak in any language you want and not just with words, but with music, photos, and quotes.
A Kiwanis-family member said to me one day, “You should start blogging; document everything,” in response to my out of country travel to Africa. I took her suggestion into consideration. Considering I am a photographer, and I will be taking a lot of great photographs on this trip, why not do a photo blog? That is common among photographers, and it is worth it.
I told my mom I was considering it, she thought it was a great idea. She stated how she knows I am good with words (I inherited my writing skills from her).
Then this quote came to my mind “You miss 100% of the shots you never take.” Four years later, I finally hit 1,000 all-time views on the photo blog.
This time, my goal is to motivate and inspire. I have always been a researcher and a very observant person. I have the plot of the movie Julie & Julia in my head, I can be like Julia and blog about my passion and what I know the most about and expect the unexpected. I've been to so many places, seen so many things and have been through a lot, so I am wise beyond my years. I hope you enjoy and learn a lot while following along my journey being motivated and inspired! All the while, I will be documenting my journey to 30 countries by the age of 30.

Growing up, I always went on road trips with both my mother and my father.
Despite the many travels up and down the east coast, I never once thought about going outside of the country. Until one day in high school, everything changed
When I first started a blog, I didn’t have a million sources of inspirations as there are now. A lot of it was my research. After seven years in the blogging world, it’s only right to give back the knowledge.
