Twipper of the Week: Jenny Feng, contributing writer at The Outbound Collective.
Current city: Home is Calgary, Canada
Total countries visited: 23
What makes you interesting: The diverse life experiences I have accumulated. I grew up and spent my childhood in China and lived in Canada since my early teens. I built a career in corporate banking in the last five years which I’m extremely proud of. I recently left banking to work on a new project (in stealth mode). Instagram has been a wonderful creative outlet for me the last year. I have traveled to five different continents (6th in 2 weeks!). I’m an adrenaline junkie and have done everything from skydiving in Dubai to cage diving with Great White Sharks in South Africa. I love house music. I love geopolitics. I love meeting new people from all walks of life. I ran a full marathon in Spain in 2012. I have always believed in giving back to the community, making a difference, and have always been involved with different charity organizations since university. I live for new experiences!
What brands do you love: Google – I admire companies with such incredible innovation and creative capabilities, and their power to change and disrupt the world as we know it.
Where are you the most authentic you: Anywhere and everywhere – because why would you ever be someone else?!
It’s 2050, list all the places you are most proud to have visited: Egypt (check), Dubai (check), Philippines (check), Machu Picchu, Kenya, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Russia, Antarctica, and hopefully as close to 195 countries as possible!
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned from traveling: Don’t take everything at face value, and don’t believe everything you see or hear. Go experience for yourself.
How has travel changed you or how do you hope it will change you: Travel has made me more humble as a human being, more understanding of our differences, and more grateful for this interesting little journey we call life!
Next travel destination: Sydney and Cairns, Australia, and moving to Cairns this winter!
