I'm Kari - a world traveler and a life long learner on a never ending adventure.  I was born and raised in Minnesota, and have also lived in Ecuador, Argentina, France, and aboard the MV Explorer (a ship that sails around the world)!

I graduated from the University of Minnesota in May 2013 with a triple major in Journalism, Global Studies, and Spanish Studies. I think it's funny how we choose our professions.  When I was younger I was sure I would go into theater, but as I grew older I knew I didn't want to recite the same lines every night to a different audience, but learn how to tell new stories in a convicting way which brought me to journalism.

After graduating I decided the post-grad cookie cutter plan wasn't for me so I packed a very heavy suitcase and booked a one-way flight to France.  I spent the year working in exchange for room and board and somewhere along the way I learned French. 

I'm curious and love trying new things.  I'm not sure where I'll end up next, but I'll be sure to keep you posted.
