My name is Jordana and I am a globetrotting, book-loving, food-worshiping, anthropology-studying, life enthusiast! I am a xenophile. I've combined my wanderlust with my life's greatest passion; The study of culture. What does that mean? It means I'm not your average "tourist". There is no "us" and "them". There's no such thing as a language "barrier", and culture shock" merely denotes a lack of understanding. Growing up in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, I always saw it as a privilege to grow up in such a multicultural corner of the world. My love affair with travel began 16 years ago on a six week road trip across Mexico. I once took over a year off to gallivant the globe, an adventure I hope to repeat in the very near future. I've chased lions through Zambia, lunched with Black Gibbons in the middle of the Sumatran jungle, celebrated New Years at the Dead Sea, fished with cormorants in China, learned to Salsa at an underground club in Havana, and stayed up to watch the sunrise with a Thai monk. After returning from my whirlwind world tour, I decided to become an anthropologist, and I've never looked at the world the same. I'm of the belief that when you take stock of everything you're made of, you gain a greater respect for the global community. At the end of the day, I hope that all my travels and academic pursuits help me achieve my greatest goal; To become a more humane human.
