Traveler Bio

Hello, my name is Cassidy and I am 22 years old. I am from a small town in Louisiana called Denham Springs. I have lived in Louisiana for most of my life with my two sisters and parents. I love to play tennis. I even got to play tennis at my college! I also love going to museums and learning new things.

My grandmother taught me to love art at a young age, and through art, I developed a strong desire to explore the world. My first time traveling outside of the U.S., I visited three European countries: England, Italy and France. I fell in love with traveling and learning about how people outside of the U.S. live. I had to study abroad! I decided to study in South Korea, where I was able to do many of the things I love (hike, bike, read, and go to museums), but I also had the opportunity to try many new things, too.

Let's revisit that experience in South Korea together!
