Listen to Episode 004 with Breeanna Jantzen here:
I love hearing stories about people who follow their heart and try to live meaningful lives rather than just conforming to the life society thinks we should live.
I met a lot of interesting people while solo-backpacking across Thailand last January, but Breeanna stood out from all the other 20-somethings I met.
She wasn't in Thailand for holiday, the full-moon parties, or the island hopping across the many world class beaches. She was there to make a difference in the lives of young Thai girls who were at a high risk of falling into the sex-trafficking and child exploitation industry.
This podcast is so powerful because Breeanna shares her story about how growing up on the poverty line in Canada taught her an incredible sense of empathy and understanding toward other people.
This desire to help others is what led her to Thailand to volunteer (and later return to work full-time) for a non-profit organization she felt so strongly about.
She says that her perspective continues to change every single day through working with these young Thai girls who have no sense of entitlement or demand, and have no expectations from the people around them.
"Traveling made me aware of the realities of the world outside of North America."
We dive deep into the topic of travel, how it gives you a different view and appreciation of life, why you should follow your heart even when it seems unrealistic and how being true to yourself will ultimately lead to discovering your destiny.
If you've ever wanted to travel and work abroad, whether its to work for a non-profit organization in parts of the developing world like Breeanna is doing, or even teach English in various different countries, you'll absolutely love this interview!
"When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it."
