MY NAME IS JENNIFER BETESH.
A FEW WORDS TO DESCRIBE ME?
I AM A STUDENT AT EUGENE LANG THE NEW SCHOOL FOR LIBERAL ARTS.
YOGI. VEGAN. LIGHT TRAVELER FROM NJ/NY. I AM AT SCHOOL FOR LITERARY STUDIES AND NONFICTION WRITING, AND AM LOOKING FOR INSPIRATION EVERYWHERE I GO. I LIVE TO INSPIRE USING MY WRITING, AND TO LEARN FROM ALL AROUND ME.
I BELIEVE WE ARE MEANT TO TRAVEL AND SEE THE WORLD AND AID OTHERS IN THEIR TRAVELS. FURTHER, TO AID, INSPIRE, TEACH, AND LEARN FROM EVERYONE WE ENCOUNTER.
WHAT BETTER WAY IS THERE THAN TO SHARE LOVE AND LIGHT THROUGH CREATIVE EXPERIENCE AND INTERACTION WITH HOSPITABLE STRANGERS?
IN THE CASE OF AIRBNB, THE STRANGE IN STRANGERS DOES NOT MAKE FACES LOOK UGLY, AND THERE IS NEVER AN "ALONE."
"That's just the thing about recognizing our common humanity, our common burden. We're suspended for a moment on this spinning blue pearl, here together and alive right now, conscious, though no one knows why. It is a question of caring. When one of us considers the experiences of another, all the failings and the achievements in someone else's life, we are seeing from this common place, knowing that it's all taking place in doubt and the absolute solitude and terror of being human, and knowing that it's all temporary. All those who are unsure of themselves and suspect themselves of the worst falseness and wrong, bad things are to be not only pitied but loved, identified with and known." -Maria Bustillos
