Most memorable trip in 2 sentences or less:
Interning for an NGO in the Philippines for a summer in college, I learned to maneuver around metropolitan Manila alone, expanded my understanding of social justice, and returned to the US humbled, plump, and ravenous for meaningful travel.
Favorite souvenir/thing to bring back?
I am such a collector, and always bring back scraps of paper with inspiring graphics, or invitations or advertisements, or found handwritten notes. I have these kinds of scraps from all over the world and I’m just waiting to see what I will make of them. I also love bringing back handmade textiles, jewelry, and again, little gifts that typifies a place.
