My name is Jessica. Friends call me Jess. I am a 21 year old living in the beautiful country of Canada, attending university and studying for my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. I’m hoping to either become a pediatric oncology nurse, or a travel nurse with “Doctors Without Borders/Medicins Sans Frontiers (MSF)”. Recently, I discovered a strong urge to find myself — who I am as a person, who I can be, what I can do. My gut tells me that the best (and most expensive) way for me to do this is to travel around the globe.

Quick facts:
1) I am 5ft tall (seriously) I had a spinal fusion with implantation in 2013 to correct my 70 degree thoracic scoliosis curvature
3) I am a really busy person
4) I am very independent
5) I am oddly obsessed with turtles – I hope my travels someday will bring me somewhere I can swim with the beautiful creatures
