Why I Left My Fancy Life - 21


Who is This American Girl?

This American Girl is a travel blog with a heart. I may write about exotic locations, gorgeous beaches, and wild adventures, but this blog is about so much more than that. This blog is first and foremost about inspiring people to see that they are worthy of living a spectacular life. You can read more about that here.

In addition to being a travel writer and photographer, I’m also a Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher and Reiki Level II practitioner. My writing and my travels come from a place of mindfulness, and I aim to inspire my readers to live and travel with heart-centered intention. What does this mean? First and foremost honoring and respecting yourself, honoring and respecting everyone that you meet, honoring and respecting the local culture, and perhaps most importantly of all honoring the Earth.

“With just one article you’ve already played an important role in changing my life. I’m looking forward to your words of wisdom & resources throughout my journey!”

  2. Hello,

    I am in the middle of a fundraiser hoping to raise money for a social enterprise dedicated to improving the lives of women and children living in impoverished communities in Central America.

    Right now I am concentrating on raising enough money to provide 200 solar-powered lights for students at Education Plus School in Nicaragua who live without electricity. About 1/3 of Nicaragua lives without electricity. For every person who donates $9 for a light, they will be entered in a three-day all-inclusive Costa Rican Yoga Retreat at AmaTierra ( The drawing takes place Sept. 12 at 9:30 pm Central Time. We will broadcast it live on our Periscope account. I also have a few Costa RIcan Yoga Retreats for sale to raise money.

    I need help promoting this fundraiser. Is there any way you can post it on one of your social media channels? I know you do brand partnerships. What would it cost for a few mentions over the next two week? I could create an IG picture or write a blog about the project if you would like. Please let me know if you have any questions on this. Thank you for your time,
