Traveler Bio

Hi friends! My name is Emily, and I am from Atlanta, Georgia.  When I was younger, my family and I took many road trips all around the United States. These fond memories developed my love for traveling and encouraged me to see more of the world. In college, I studied English, Biology and Sociology.  After I graduated, I decided that I wanted to volunteer some of my time to help others. That's why I joined the Peace Corps to help teach English to locals and learn more about cultures different from my own. Currently, I am living in a small mountain village in Morocco, teaching English classes and encouraging young people here to chase their dreams. Come embark on this journey with me!
