Lost Girl of the Week: Kimberly FisherLost Girl of the Week — By Lost Girls on October 13, 2010 at 6:00 am
This week’s LG of the Week, Kimberly Fisher, links her love of travel with her heritage. She spent summers exploring places which represented her diverse background. She wasn’t a ‘by the book’ person, and embraced the world around her without limitations.
I have always been a lost girl wandering the planet since I was a child. Part bookworm, part social butterfly, part connoisseur globetrotter…I have always been curious about off-the-beaten path adventures and other cultures. That curiosity have taken me to almost every U.S. State and 39 different countries so far.
The Lost Girl mentality started partly due to growing up in Alaska with an Asian mother and English/American Indian Father. Spending many summers traveling to places that represented my heritage will forever be imprinted in my mind. With outdoor activities such as snowboarding, ice fishing and sled dogging being “the norm”, my sense of adventure has varied from feeding sharks in Tahiti to zip lining in Mexico to exploring the jungles of Belize.
Traveling to different places and experiencing different cultures teaches you to appreciate not only what is out there, but our own culture. If you are a strong individual with clear goals, you can accomplish anything. Roaming the world you seem to connect with other like-minded people that have climbed to the top of their professional, defeated hurdles and challenges and made the most out of what they had.
While I am not traveling the world, I am working on my online travel boutique and blog www.Jetsetera.net and SpokesmodelsPlus.com, a booking service for spokesmodels and public speakers.
