Hi, I'm Jessica. I am from a small town, but love to explore new places and meet new people. I have traveled to Guatemala and am hoping to do more traveling in the near future (preferably to somewhere warm and sunny!). I love trying new foods and cooking with new foods too. In fact, I am passionate about growing food sustainably and building food access and food security. Basically, anything dealing with food, the environment, and people... I love it all. I also love making things, like jewelry, knitted hats and scarves (haven't learned any stitches past the basic knit and purl yet), rugs, you name it. I also enjoy watching movies and documentaries and listening to (and singing along to) disco and soul.
As a guest, I am laid-back, but I am also a planner. I try to get as many details worked out as possible beforehand, but if that doesn't happen entirely, it's not the end of the world. I am up for most anything, and would like to get to know the hosts that I stay with and the area I am staying in. I am also very willing to help cook or clean up because I will be very grateful to be staying with you!
