Hi, I’m Brittany.
I’m a freelance writer, blogger, and an advocate for personal freedom. I understand what it’s like to be frustrated because money and student debt seem to be keeping you from living your dreams. But I’m here to show you that it is possible.
Us millennials (and people of all ages) don’t have to sit around and put our dreams on hold while we sit back and pay off a debt that seems un-payable.
I entered college with a passion to change the world and left with a degree in Spanish & International Affairs and a changed life. But I also left with a pretty hefty bill to pay.
The thought of sitting in a job I hated and doing the same thing every day just to pay off my loans was killing me.
I decided I wouldn’t do it. I decided to take control of my life because it’s too short to spend wasting away in an office.
Now, I’m 24 years old and living a location-independent lifestyle in a foreign country.
Three months after graduating, I found an English-teaching job in Colombia. I loved Colombia so much I ended up staying! But I hated the job. So I decided to try something else.
I took the plunge with almost no savings to back me up. I was determined to make it work.
And guess what? I did! (But not without some sacrifice).
This blog is my way of sharing my experiences with you so that you can do the same! I remember when I was lost and trying to decide what to do with my life, I couldn’t find any blogs that talked about my debt-filled situation.
