Hi, I’m Sarah!
Thanks for checking out my little corner of the internet!
I’m a twenty-something writer and creative originally from Nashville, TN with a passion for working in the nonprofit sector. I recently returned from Peace Corps volunteer service after a short stint in Ukraine, where I worked with a grassroots village NGO on their marketing strategy. While living in this village, I facilitated two weekly English clubs, saw my graphic design work in print for the first time ever, and tried some of the best vegan food in my life.
Before Peace Corps, I studied economics and Spanish at Sewanee. While in undergrad, I did a summer program in Costa Rica, which began my love for travel. Since then, I’ve been to the Bahamas, Spain, Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Holy See, the U.K., Ireland, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Japan, Ukraine, Belgium, and the Netherlands. That’s 16 countries and counting!
I’ve been a blogger for the past five years, starting with my little WordPress.com blog titled “The Prince-less and the Blog,” where I wrote here and there about being a “grown-up” college girl. The semester before I went abroad to Barcelona, I updated the design and name of my blog to “Sarah the Chosen.” The posts written in the study abroad archives came from that phase of my blog!
The summer after college graduation, I completely changed the design of my blog and it was renamed to “Soul of Serenity.” That blog was my passion project. The more I traveled, the more I had to share, and the more people seemed interested in what I had to say. After putting so much time into Soul of Serenity, I started to think about purchasing my own domain. So now, here we are at Sarah L. Travels!
Because Soul of Serenity is where I really fell in love with blogging, I didn’t have the heart to delete it or make my content on there private. You can go check it out at this link: https://www.thesoulofserenity.wordpress.com.
On this blog you will find content about all my favorite things: my faith in Jesus, veganism, good books, new destinations, and just plain life. When I’m not writing here, you can find me publishing stories about social justice, race, body positivity, and a range of other light reading on Medium.
Feel free to stick around and read more about my past experiences, and those yet to come!
