“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.”
Lynda is a twenty something year old Business graduate; Australian by birth, Maltese by blood, American twang from ? Don’t worry, we were confused too.
Lynda loves to travel. She wants to see it all, live it all and be it all. If she could spend every day of her life travelling, she probably would. Sadly though, there comes a time in every twenty-something year old’s life where travel sucks them dry and they shamelessly return home to mother and fathers house and start saving all over again.
While openly admitting she enjoys laughing really loud at stupid things, do not let this fool you; Lynda holds a Bachelors Degree in Business from La Trobe University with majors in Marketing & Management.
Most English nerds live a life of fear; at any given second, a big bully may come around and pull their hair and break their glasses for expressing their thoughts and love of writing; but not this one. Lynda loves to write; as testament to this very blog. She has no problem screaming this from a mountain top, but instead, she will just let the world read for itself.
In July of 2010, Lynda completed a 12 month Internship with Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, USA. During this time she was lucky enough to work at Cirque du Soleil’s resident show, La Nouba, at Downtown Disney. This was amongst one of the happiest times of her life. Unfortunately for her, Disney does not do long term visa sponsorship otherwise she would still be happily working there.
Living abroad was a big eye-opener for Lynda. It made her realise that there were things in life that she wanted that she previously hadn’t. It opened her up to feelings she hadn’t felt before and made her appreciate and see things in a whole new light. This only fuelled Lynda’s burning desire to move abroad all the more and to no other place than the US of A.
Lynda spent years telling family and friends that one day she would find a way to move back to Florida. People often laughed at her and told her to keep dreaming; that her dream was almost impossible given the current state of the US job market and the difficulty in obtaining visa sponsorship but Lynda did not care. The constant words of doubt made her want it all the more.
In April of 2012, after five years of trying, Lynda finally made it happen; she secured herself a full time job offer and visa sponsorship back in Orlando, Florida. On May 25, 2012, with her life packed into only two suitcases, she hopped on a plane and never turned back.
It was the best decision of her life.
