Traveler Bio

¡Hola! Hello! My name is Kathleen, but I mainly go by Kat. I'm from the northwest region of Indiana, and I'm 22 years young! I started playing violin at age 4, I used to camp at Indiana Dunes National Park and go boating in Kentucky, and I have a family who loves to play card games--especially euchre. It's hard to believe that I'm already a senior at Purdue University! Next May, I will be graduating with two degrees, psychology and Spanish.

My opportunity to spend a semester abroad in Argentina did not work out due to all the Coronavirus turmoil. However, over the past two years, I've been lucky to do a lot of traveling and observing different cultures. I have many stories based on the most remarkable people, food, music, and places I experienced in seven countries. I cannot wait to share these memories with you!
