There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling, what if you fly? -EH
Midwest Heart. Adventurer. English Teacher. Female Traveler.
Escaping the city and entering the world.
Born and raised in Minnesota by two incredible parents alongside 3 fun loving siblings. I spent my college years at the University of Minnesota studying Journalism and Communications. My travel bug first awoke when I backpacked through Europe for a month at the age of 19 with my sister and from then on my life was forever changed. I then studied abroad in London and met some of the greatest people I have ever known. After graduating I entered the corporate world for 4 years and very soon realized that my life in a cubicle didn’t feel quite right. My dreams felt bigger than that.
Then I entered my next chapter of my life: Teaching abroad. I originally went to college to become a teacher but changed majors my junior year (as many of us do). I soon realized that if I were to regret something in life, it would have been not teaching abroad. I decided to take the next step in my journey and intertwine my passions of children, teaching and travel and pack my bags to move to South Korea. I moved to Korea in August 2015 and lived there until August 2017. South Korea holds an incredibly special place in my heart. I have found a love for teaching that I never imagined.
My current chapter of my life: I will graduate this summer with my Masters of Arts degree in Elementary Education: K-6. I incorporate my experience from teaching in South Korea to my everyday practices in teaching in the US Public School System. I have a passion for education and children and showing them the beautiful world around them. My adventures never stop and I am always allowing myself to grow as a person through new experiences.
My hope is that I can share with you all my adventures while hoping to inspire others to make the change and find the passion in themselves to do something that they love.
I love hearing from all of you over the years and I appreciate all of your messages. Please feel free to reach out anytime! I am happy to help in anyway I can!
Love from Minnesota,
