From living on island time to the rush of city life, my world flip-flopped as I embarked on my collegiate journey at UC-Berkeley. Now, I've graduated college and am working in a National Park, experiencing the natural world at its finest and finding my identity as I go.
Although I lived in Atlanta for the greater part of my childhood, Sullivan's Island, South Carolina is my true home. The stink of pluff mud drifting by as I drove to school; the salty breeze softly brushing back my hair; the soft hues of pink, orange, and yellow painting the morning sky as the sun appeared from the ocean's horizon –– these defined my childhood.
Fast forward a bit: I've graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in Anthropology and Classical Civilizations, and I'm now living in Montrose, Colorado at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. The only constant in my life now is me, and I'm watching my dreams pan out in front of me as an archaeologist.
Post-grad life is so far so good, but who knows what the future has in store? Stick around and find out!
