I’m a university student and communications director currently residing in Boulder, Colorado. I’m pursuing a degree in International Affairs and Chinese with an affinity for Peace & Conflict Studies. Ultimately, I want to find a career that serves a higher purpose and allows me to meet cool people, experience new cultures, and travel to far off places. Most of my wanderlust centers around food, but one of the best parts of being anywhere is all of the lives I can encounter and, hopefully, enrich.

I hope this blog inspires you to explore new places and do neat things. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media (always @hollyandoates)!

If you want to reach out to me about content or provide general feedback or for press/media inquiries and other collaborations, send me an e-mail and I will try to respond in a timely manner.
