Sojourner of Sojournies
Sojourner is an AmeriCorps Service Member who shares adventures on Sojournies. Her passion for international travel led her to study abroad in Spain and then later return to teach English as a Fulbright Scholar. The psychology major in her inspires her to encourage others to expand both their geographical and mental boundaries.
Quote: "In Fulbright, we always talked about how crosscultural experiences enhance mutual understanding between people. I believe that 10,000 percent. But with the travel industry, it's hard to live that truth when the majority of travelers come from the same nationality, race, sexual orientation, class, body type, even hair texture! Having more diverse representation means more cultural awareness, new perspectives, and deeper conversations. More people can be inspired by fresh faces, and voices, to pursue their travel dreams. No matter where they are."
