My Last Letter to You

My Dear Friend, Hello. This will probably be the last letter I write to you. It’s been a hell of a couple years, hasn’t it? Who knew two years ago we’d be where we are today.  I’m not really sure what to say. I feel…at peace. I feel… closure. I feel… content and ready for […]

Learning Log 4

On September 1, 2018, I set out on a two-year journey of leadership and self-discovery. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was so excited. I had so much adrenaline. I don’t think I was even scared. I had a half-baked plan of what I was going to do. I was focusing on Asian […]

Justice for George Floyd

My Dearest, These past two months have definitely been trying to say the least. I remember waking up to see the news on my Facebook feed the morning after George Floyd was murdered. I remember trying to stay off social media, which was a coping mechanism for me. I wanted to go to the action […]

Is This the End?

Dear friend, It’s now day 10 of quarantine back in Minneapolis. It’s hard to imagine just one month ago I was sitting on the steps outside an empty Ankor Wat in Cambodia. Three weeks ago I was exploring the beaches of Krabi, Thailand. And just over a week ago I rode a motorbike up the […]

Learning Log 3

I cannot believe that I am three-quarters of the way through my fellowship! It seems like just yesterday I was getting ready to depart on an adventure of a lifetime. Scared. Excited. Nervous. Ready – or so I thought. Something special I’ve noticed this past year and a half is that as I went along […]

End of an Era

Dear Friend, Hello, I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving 😀 (I wrote this last month haha) I realized this past week that this is my very first Thanksgiving by myself. I mean, I wasn’t alone. But it was the first time in 31 years where I wasn’t around friends or family. It’s kind of […]

Dear friend, Hi how are you? Can’t believe it’s already been a month since I left MN. Time is really flying by fast. I’m on a bullet train in Japan right now headed to Hiroshima. I’m excited to go there to learn about the city, to see the impact of WW2, how the city survived […]
