When I studied abroad for the first time, after 10th grade, I didn’t want to go. But by summer’s end, I didn’t want to go home again. I’ve since lived in Spain, Italy, the U.K., India, Nepal, Tibet, El Salvador, Ecuador, and, currently, Mexico. In the midst of this, on a host family’s roof, I wrote my first travel story and sent it to Glimpse.org, where it was published. Again, something clicked, and I haven’t looked back. My subsequent work has appeared in literary journals, newspapers, and magazines. Recently, I co-authored my first book. Of course, I am thrilled to be writing for Glimpse again: it’s funny, I think, how often journeys arrive where they began.
