Please join us in welcoming two more of our new ambassadors, Jessica Curren of Currently Wandering and Jenni Chiu of Mommy Nani Booboo (left to right, below). We are excited to have these adventurous ladies join our team! Read below to get a little inside peek at who they are!
Tell us a little bit about yourselves:
Jess: I am a Professional Wedding Photographer turned Full-Time Nomad. I travel the country year round with my husband and three kids while living in an Airstream travel trailer. (188 square feet!) Over the last two years, I have become adept at adventure planning, homeschooling, and small living. My family spends most of their time hiking, backpacking, mountain biking and visiting National Parks all over the country.
Jenni: I am a writer, video content creator, and general online creative. I contribute to many publications, but most people online know me from my blog – MommyNaniBooboo.com, and my YouTube channel – JenniChiuTube. When I’m not behind the computer screen, I’m hiking with my family, doing yoga, or hanging with the Cub Scouts. I love social media, social justice, and people who dance.
Person that inspires you?
Jess: John Muir ‐ I love his passion for exploration and inspiring others to preserve the best nature has to offer.
Jenni: My mother. We live far away from each other now, but when I think of the kind of mother I want to be, I think of her. I have very little childhood memories of her that involve anger or punishment. My memories of her are those of her patience, kindness, and honesty.
Best piece of advice you ever received?
Jess: “Motherhood is not a hobby, its a calling. Its not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for.” ‐Neil L. Anderson
Jenni: Nothing is permanent, everything changes.
What’s the most amazing experience you’ve had in your life?
Jess: Traveling the country with my family while living in an Airstream travel trailer!
Jenni: I once flew a glider plane. It was a pilot and myself in an engine-less plane. We got towed up into the sky high above the mountains by a larger plane – we were attached behind it with a cable. The moment we were high enough we disconnected from the larger plane. I thought I would be terrified at that moment, but instead it was instant peace. It was silent. No engine… just gliding on the wind… then the pilot let me take over the controls. Amazing.
What are you listening to right now?
Jess: Imagine Dragons, Pandora Station
Jenni: David Bowie, Let’s Dance
Huge thanks to both of you for answering our questions. Here’s to a great year!
