Hello everyone, the Traveling Storygirl here.
Marisa is the name I was given at birth, but ever since then I jumped at the opportunity to tell stories. A classmate once gave me the nickname Storygirl, and it has stuck ever since.
I began this blog to document my adventures as I began my year of studying abroad in the quaint town of Heidelberg, Germany. But why limit myself to telling stories of my adventures as they happen? I want to share my travel stories, tips, and lessons from my 21 years of travel.
Thus, TheTravelingStorygirl was born.
But you didn’t come here just to learn about why I began my blog. You came to this page to learn a little bit about me. Well here it goes.
I’m a broadcast journalism student at Pepperdine University. When I’m not busy documenting the dramatic sunsets over the beaches of Malibu, I can be found dedicating myself to the sisterhood of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority or reporting the news on NewsWaves32. I love traveling and have currently visited all 50 states in the U.S.A. and 40 foreign countries, although I’ll always call California my home.
Two years later, I am working on expanding my brand while maintaining a focus on the thing I love most – travel. People always ask me why I’m always traveling and it’s honestly because I can’t get enough of it.
The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only the first page
In my opinion, life is too short to only read one page, and God knows I love to read. My goal is to inspire people just like me, or maybe those who are nothing like me to get out and travel.
