Welcome

To Being Christina Jane

I’m Christina, a Haitian-American who decided to pursue her desire to travel the world with a solo trip to Thailand + Bali my sophomore year in college in 2020 at 19 (one week before you know what!). Unfulfilled from my undergraduate years, that experience changed my outlook on life and has encouraged me to continue exploring the world, and move to Ghana in 2021 for grad school!
