SWIPE RIGHT TO SEE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE EVERRR!
.
.
.
Before I came to China, the one place I knew I had to go was Zhangjiajie, which is famous for having the mountains that inspired the floating Avatar Mountains. And let me tell you, I was very worried when I saw how much mist and fog there was! But when it would clear for a couple minutes, it created the most unbelievable scenery 😍😍😍 I definitely plan on coming back someday!

Reppin’ the Y in the hinterlands of China! 👌🏽😂 These pictures are actually from a month ago when I was in Urumqi for the Chinese National Holiday, so just think of it as me building up suspense for what’s next 👍🏽😂

Did you know you could ride horses to a waterfall with Kazakhs that don’t speak Chinese in China?? 😍😂

If you didn’t know, I just got to Urumqi a couple days ago, which is in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region in the farthest northwest part of China by Kazakhstan and Mongolia! And it is incredibly beautiful 😍

“Dream big and make life fun. Do something outrageous each day. Follow your passion. Believe in yourself.” ✨ 
If you didn’t know already, I’m doing a study abroad in China this semester! 🇨🇳 I’ve been here for a little over a week and I’ve already learned and grown so much! Although we’ve already encountered many obstacles, this has also already been one of the most fantastic and rewarding trips I’ve ever been on. Follow your dreams! You can do hard things! 😊💪🏽

I’m so grateful that I received my mission call to Indonesia and I still remember going to the MTC just over 5 years ago (has it really been that long?? 😬). This country and its people have taught me so much and have completely changed my life and the way I see the world. ❤️🌏

Every time I leave the country, I fall in love with the culture of wherever I go. It happens over and over again and is by far my favorite part of traveling. ❤️

It’s an incredible experience to step out of your comfort zone a little bit and try to see the world through someone else’s eyes. 🌏It blows my mind how poor and isolated some people are for their entire lives. This 86-year-old man from Klaten was born here and lived here his entire life and has never left Indonesia. He’s been a poor farmer his whole life, never lived in a house with A/C, and can barely hear. And yet, he is one of the happiest people I have ever met. I think we can all learn something from that ❤️🙌🏼

I can’t believe my time in this beautiful country is already half over. 😭 Even though I don’t know anything about nutrition (for those who don’t know, I’m here with @neem_nonprofit to teach nutrition education), this trip has been life-changing and has allowed me to see the country I love in a completely different way. It has touched my heart to see how loving and kind the people here have been towards our group in welcoming them with open arms. ❤️ I’m so thankful to God, and to @inspiredbymarisa and @auttyshipp for making this trip possible for me!

Aku mencintai Indonesiaku ❤️ Also, if you can’t already tell, @auttyshipp is a magician with her camera! 📸😍

Ever since I came home from Indonesia, I have been obsessed with Southeast Asia. When I saw pictures of this place, I knew I had to go to Thailand. When I finally got to go this week, it was everything I could have dreamed of 😍 the beaches were gorgeous and the water was just as blue as it is in all the pictures 💯 if you ever have the chance to go to Thailand, do it. 🙌🏼

Also sorry I didn’t have WiFi as often as I thought, so you’ll probably be seeing Thailand pictures for at least a month 😂

STAY CALM.

This last year has been pretty crazy for me with so many trials and big decisions. At times, I get completely overwhelmed. But one thought has kept me sane, and that is to just stay calm.

Life is always going to be crazy and stressful and it will never go according to plan. So there’s no need to stress yourself out more. Be happy, find peace, and take one step at a time. 👍🏽 @staywear @thestayers 📸: @brooklyn.kemmphoto

“If we could spread love as quickly as we spread hate and negativity, what an amazing world we would live in.” Everyone has struggles to overcome, and everyone has hard times. Let’s try to be part of the solution and not make the problem worse. There’s enough sadness in the world without us adding to it.

I love this shirt and bracelet from @ascendwood!!! 🙌🏼 They’re an awesome Christian organization that donates part of every purchase to charities in Uganda, Kenya, and Haiti.

Check out their stuff and use JC50 for 50% your entire purchase!!! 👍🏼 P.S. the shirt says faith, hope, love in Greek!!! :)

Since my dad passed away just over two weeks ago, I have had a lot of time to think, about life, and ton of other things, but there is one thing that keeps popping in my head.

HOPE. No matter what happens, there is always hope. That doesn’t mean our trials are any easier, but hope can relieve a lot of the pain.

I’m proud to be an ambassador for @staywear this year to help spread messages of hope and healing.

If you are struggling right now, please know that God loves you and I am here for you. Please remember, difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations. 📸: @brooklyn.kemmphoto

This is my Dad. He is the greatest man I’ve ever met, and God called him home on Sunday. Although it has hurt tremendously to see him go, I know he is pain free now, and he can run as much as he wants without any breathing problems, and he is happy. 😇

He was the hardest worker that I’ve ever met by far and he was always trying to improve himself. He has taught me how to work hard and not make excuses, but he has also taught me to love others and to serve selflessly. He has sacrificed so much for his family and showed me how important family is. He gave me my love of sports, my love of music, my love of traveling, and everything that defines who I am. I hope I can live up to his legacy and make him proud! He is going to do great things on the other side and I know God must have needed him pretty bad. God, please give him a big hug for me. 🙏

Love you Dad ❤️
