My name is Whitney and I am an aerospace engineer (MIT PhD and NCSU BS) from North Carolina.
In May 2018, I decided to make a career change. Since the end of 2013, I had been working on a project to provide internet access to the globe. It was an incredible opportunity, but I started to miss academia and I missed working with students. I decided it was time to give my ultimate dream job a go, and set out to become a professor. My official start date for academia was set for September 2019, which left me with a little bit of time for travel and reflect.
I’ve created this blog to share information I wish I would have known prior to travelling, along with life hacks I have learned along the way. My goal in sharing this content is to save you time and energy, and hopefully improve your day-to-day.
Enjoy the ride!
