2015 was without a doubt one of the most significant years of my life; it was the year I turned 30, the year my career really took off, the year I challenged myself both mentally and physically, and the year I jumped out of a plane for the first time. 

It’s sometimes easy to forget all the memories you made in a single year, which is why I love to look back at my Instagram stats at the end of every year. I’m so thankful for the places I have been fortunate to travel to, the people I have met along the way, and the experiences that have helped shape this new chapter and decade in my life. 2015 took me to 7 incredible countries including the US, Australia, Canada, Nicaragua, Jamaica, England and Spain. What a year!

Here’s to another great year ahead of exploration, education, and self-discovery.
