When she was 25, she quit her job, sublet her apartment and backpacked around the world alone for 19 months. Destinations like Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam gave her the most eye-opening experiences of her life – experiences that still define her to this day.
