Hi, thanks for visiting! My name is Julia and I’m a recent graduate of Harvard University, where I studied psychology and global health. Traveling is my passion, and I can’t wait to share my adventures with you!
As you’ll hopefully read, I caught the travel bug during college. During the summer after my freshman year (summer 2013) I was a teacher at the Maru-a-Pula school in Gaborone, Botswana (which allowed me to take weekend trips to Victoria falls (Zimbabwe/Zambia), Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa).
During the wintersession and spring breaks of 2014, 2015 and 2016, I participated in HCAP (the Harvard College in Asia Program). Harvard HCAP students run a conference on Harvard’s campus for 65 Asian university delegates from 8 different countries (as well as 90 Harvard students) and in return get to travel to one of those 8 countries during spring break for a reciprocal conference on the same theme. In March of 2014, I went to Dubai to learn about sustainable cities, during March of 2015 I went to Istanbul to discover the many connections between technology and my generation, and during March of 2016 I travelled to Mumbai to learn about social inequality and injustice.
During my junior fall semester (Sept – Dec 2014), I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain. This included many weekend adventures around Spain as well as Portugal, Morocco, France and England. I’m now currently teaching English in Madrid for the 2016-2017 academic year.
I’d love to hear what you think about this blog and/or any suggestions you might have, so please feel free to comment on my posts!
