Where she comes from…

Hey everyone! I’m Alexis, and I’m a Floridian living and working  in Washington, DC. Before starting my job, I was a graduate student at American University for two years. I also lived in Ankara, Turkey and worked as a Fulbright English teacher at a public university for roughly a year. In the past seven years, I’ve been fortunate enough to study abroad, see different parts of the U.S., attend two inaugurations, intern in Washington, D.C., and win a government grant to live overseas.

One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2015 was to create a blog, and I’ve been hot and cold on the idea since then. What should I write about? What if I’m not a good enough writer? Deciding to move to Turkey was the catalyst I needed!

I wouldn’t describe myself as adventurous, but I always seem to find myself dreaming of traveling – returning to where I’ve been and planning where I want to go next. I want to use this blog as a way to not only share my adventures with you but to also help you find a way to have some adventures of your own!

    Hi,
    I hope all is well! I have been awarded an ETA to Turkey for the upcoming year, and upon my research I have discovered numerous blogs, one of which is yours! I was wondering if you would be willing to chat with me about some of your experiences and offer advice? Please let me know! Thank you!!!

    1. Oh wow, I’m so excited for you! I’m slightly embarrassed now because I’ve been slacking on my blog and I have so much to post. Send me an email: alexischerry1@yahoo.com, and we can for sure chat about how everything works. But for now, just relax until August, go with the flow, and save a lot of money. 🙂
