The results are in! A whopping 54 people applied for the winter 2015 blogging cohort, and we’re proud to introduce you to the five amazing women who will be writing for Go Girl Travel Network starting soon!
Meet our in-house mentor, Anubha Momin!
Anubha Momin was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, raised in Toronto, Canada, and somehow ended up living in the Canadian arctic. Based in Iqaluit, capital city of Canada’s newest and biggest territory, Nunavut, Anubha is a consultant, writer, and co-creator of the blog, Finding True North. Life in the Great Canadian North is a lot of what you’d expect (cold, snowmobiles, seals, cold, igloos, cold) and a whole lot you never expected, like when it’s not cold, there are mosquitos! North of the Treeline is her Go Girl column, where she writes about all the weird and wonderful that happens where the trees stop growing and the tundra begins.
And now, meet the winter blogging cohort!
Each traveler will write a monthly column on Go Girl Travel Network while learning and growing as a blogger. We’re so excited to have them with us and know you’ll love them too!
Bri is an activist, an entrepreneur, and a nomad. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin- Madison with a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies, she found herself in D.C. working with a think tank. She did a lot of thinking about women’s health and Africa and realized that where she really wanted to be was in the field. Her next adventure is taking her to Madagascar with Peace Corps. Bri never leaves home without her yoga mat and essential oils and loves to dream about a world where all women feel empowered, safe, and healthy.
Delia Harrington is an activist, photographer, travel blogger, and intersectional feminist who focuses on the roles of culture and social justice in travel. A lifelong Bostonian, she prefers slow travel in politically tumultuous and/or developing countries, learning the language, getting off the beaten path, and seeing destinations as locals do. Delia staged her first protest at age nine and has been traveling part-time since 2006.
Kaitlin is a 15-year-old history and theater lover who has been traveling her entire life with her crazy and fun family. She was born in Amsterdam and also lived in California, Dusseldorf, Paris, and Rome — all by the time she was seven! The next seven years were spent in Venice, Italy. In September 2013 she went back on the road for an open-ended journey to see the world. So far she has visited 19 countries throughout Europe and the Middle East, and in 2015 she will explore Asia, Oceania, and wherever the wind takes her!
