Go Travel and Talk Writer Maggie

Hi, hello, what’s up! I’m Maggie, an avid writer, gardener, feminist, and explorer of both inner and outer worlds. I’m from all over the place, growing up as a child in New Jersey, England, California, and Illinois, and finding myself as a young adult in Colorado and Hawaii, before calling Antigua, Guatemala home. I received my formal education from the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado, graduating with a BA in Psychology and a Minor in Spanish and am a Masters in Social Work candidate from the same school. Everything else I have learnt from plants and traveling.

I am passionate about trauma studies and the interplay between individuals, communities, and systems and the art of reaching our potential. I am inspired by people and places, but most of all, the stories they hold. I believe we are our impact in the world, but moreover, we are transformed by who and what we impact. In 2018, I had the opportunity to live, work, play, volunteer, and travel through Colombia and Central America where I learned so much about myself and the world. I joined Go Travel and Talk as to help create a community-based and social-impact driven travel platform. For these reasons, I am so excited to be able to combine my passions and beliefs and be a part of Go Travel and Talk to continue to explore and share with as many people as possible!
