ABOUT

“Sometimes I lay under the moon and thank God I’m breathing. Then I pray, ‘don’t take me soon,’ ’cause I am here for a reason.”

A kindred spirit etched this under a bridge in Venice, Italy.

Footprints in the Air comes at a crossroads in my life, setting out into the world as a History and Literature graduate from Harvard University. The greatest lesson I learned from my studies was that it was easy to find the differences in people’s stories, but it is finding the places where they come together that matters so much more. With my bachelor degree in tow, I set out to do just that.

I am the culmination of my immigrant upbringing, my small town America residence, and my liberal education. I’m learning to buck some trends and labels, embrace and adopt others, and ultimately brave my own road in life. It is the story of how even when I don’t know where I’m going, I know I am going somewhere. It is a foundation for others to understand how the need for peace and love in a world that pitches towards conflict and hate, and my limitless love for the rights of children, compels me to make this journey. The name is a nod to the joy I find in traveling and the nomadic lifestyle my interests lead me to.

This is not the journey I thought I would take, but here I am to take it. And these are some of my thoughts for those who wish to read them, and especially, for those who have ever felt the same.
