I long to see the world, to experience its beauty, its calm and wild places. However, even more than visiting beautiful countries, I long to connect with people.
Travel is not about the Instagrammable Phở eaten in Vietnam, but the hands that made it — the hands that have a story to tell, with each wrinkle and scar. Travel is the extra five minutes it takes to get to know your Lyft driver in London, to thank him and learn where he's come from and where he hopes to be. Travel is not just a place but a community.
With my life, I hope to be a reassuring smile in dark places and a spotlight shining on the brave, beautiful and ordinary souls of the world. I hope to capture the stories of the world that are happening every second of every day.
