Hi! My name is Sydney! Welcome to my blog, Wordly Impressions! I’m so glad you decided to stop by to browse and read!
I am a small-town, Indiana girl studying global business at the University of Evansville in Evansville, Indiana. As a result of studying abroad during my junior year of high school in Mudgee, NSW, Australia, with Rotary Youth Exchange, I decided to pursue a major that will (hopefully) result in traveling or living abroad as a career one day. My experiences in the land down under can be found on my first blog, American Aussie. I will say my last few blog posts become a bit emotional/heavy/angry…reverse culture shock is real, friends! The time I spent in Australia was life-changing and enabled me to gain a global perspective. As a result, I cannot recommend studying abroad in high school or college enough to young people.
Worldly Impressions will serve as a platform to reflect on my international adventures, current books I am reading, and anything else in my life that I think is worth sharing as a “Worldly Impression.” Impression, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is “a characteristic, trait, or feature resulting from some influence.” You yourself leave a physical or emotional impression in your wake wherever you go, which can have a ripple effect in the world. Impressions, both positive and negative, are not only left by personal actions, but also by places and things unknowingly and help shape your perspective on the world. John Green’s character, Issac said in The Fault in Our Stars: “The marks humans leave are too often scars.” My goal with this blog is to be transparent and honest in a positive way and share with you my Worldly Impressions so the world can become a better place.
I hope my blog opens your eyes to adventure, offers a different perspective on the world, or provides insight into life both professionally and personally.
Leave a positive impression,
