Since starting as an Associate Content Editor for Escape Artist almost 1 year ago, I’ve had some truly amazing experiences. I had my first experience living outside of my home country (the United States). I had my first experience in a Central American marketplace (unlike anything I’ve encountered in the U.S.A.). I saw real-life, flowing lava (from a safely removed vantage point). I’ve visited many foreign cities and met many interesting people. This several-sentence summary hardly does justice in explaining the impact this experience has had on me; it truly is life-changing.
