"#MyMama made me curious about the world around me. It was summer, I could have only been eight-years-old, and we lived in a dusty patch of the middle of nowhere. One day my mom took me and my little siblings to the library, told us to each pick out a book about another country and we spent the rest of the summer learning about the culture, crafts and food of far off places. We were kids in the desert, an hour away from the nearest mall, but she made us feel like the whole world was at our doorstep. I don’t think she knows what a big impact that had on me, but I know it buried wanderlust deep in my brain. #MyMama has been so supportive of my globetrotting and is always there to help me with my next adventure. The crazy thing is that she is originally from rural North Dakota and, while she made it to the West Coast, has never traveled much (let alone left the country). She is one of the most caring, hardworking, giving people I know and does everything possible to make sure her children have all the opportunity the world has to offer."
