Traveler Bio

Hi! My name is Christina. I'm originally from New York City. I'm a 21- (almost 22!) year-old student studying human resource management and corporate social responsibility at Temple University. Earlier this year, I did something crazy! I packed my bags and crossed the "pond" to live in London for four months. It was the wildest decision I've ever made, and yet, it was the best one, too!

I went to London to study and learn about life in another country. Visiting London has long been a dream of mine. Now that I've achieved that goal, I can't wait to show you everything I learned along the way. I learned so much about social entrepreneurship and how we can effectively impact communities that will benefit from additional help. It was quite eye-opening! Along with the tasty cuisine, exciting culture, and mesmorizing accents, London was everything I expected and more.
