Meet Amina, full time biological science PHD student, part time blogger/ vlogger and committed traveller. She travels for fun, education and most importantly, family.
.
.
Amina, 25, London, is a PhD student and world traveller. She’s also an old school friend, as in we knew each other from 10 years old and regularly used to spend our lunch breaks together. Amina is the type of woman who truly looks you in the eye when you are talking to her. She is confident, stands for something and really just loves to explore and have fun. I was buzzing after speaking to her, in a really enlightened way, and I was sure that people would benefit from hearing her story.
.
.
Amina and I met in my favourite coffee shop, in my old hometown. I hadn’t seen her in 9 years, but we giggled like old times – even though it was clear she was much wiser.
.
.
In the last couple of years she had begun a travel blog and YouTube channel documenting her travels and educational journey. She hopes that by putting herself out there, she can inspire young people who want to do the same thing. Her Instagram> (@simply_amina) .

Beliefs are important. Why do you do what you do? I had to think about what I stood for when I started @thewadingwade and I ended up with this list. I call it: 'The Wading Ethos'. #KeepWading #WadingWade #MeettheTravellers

"Through visiting family I’ve been to Canada, Australia, and Ethiopia. Apart from my immediate family, I have no family here. They’re really spread out and I felt like I was missing out not knowing them that well growing up.
.
.
I love London, and this is where I’ll be for the rest of my life. But I’m missing the people instead, the family and for that reason I feel like there’s a part of me spread all over the world. Family is unconditional, and I think for me a lot of time when I go places it’s to see them. Especially when I go to Ethiopia. If we didn’t travel to see each other I’d never see them grow up. In a way it’s quite nice because we really treasure the time we have and don’t take each other for granted.
.
.
Also I find travelling to them is always a good reason to bring everyone together; sometimes they say: the last time we saw each other is when you were here, because they’re so busy in their lives; Toronto’s like London in that way it’s just very go go go. My cousins say to me “you’re the one that glues us together.”"
.
.
For Amina, one of the reasons she travels to keep the bond with family all over the world. Can you relate? I have family in Morocco I haven't seen in years but I'm determined 2017 will be the year I reconnect. .

Aside from fun travel tales, I get them to get useful with their chat – offering readers some real takeaways for their own endeavours. Looking for their go-to travel apps or most useful item? All will be revealed in these long- form interviews (around 3000 words each)

"Travel has allowed me to be more confident in myself and in my beliefs. It gives me the sense that I don’t have to change. While I travel I can get on with anyone and am welcoming of other people’s views but it doesn’t mean that I have to change in order to do that.

London puts you in a box unintentionally. You’re either a hipster or a party animal or whatever – you can only be one or the other – it’s only when I travel that I am not challenged to remain in one box, I can just be who I am." - Jade answering how travel has changed her. .

"The thing about my parents is, both parents are educated. They came over from Ethiopia, and when they have free time they take the opportunity to see their family that they haven’t seen in 5/10 years. I grew up going to Ethiopia for my holiday. For them you travel somehere for a purpose – not to go to France for culture. If you gave my mum $1000 and say where we would you go? She’d say Ethiopia, whereas I might say Brazil or something like that. But they want to see there family and it’s understandable.
.
I also think with social media it’s so easy to see other people doing the same thing, which encourages our generation. Telling someone who’s never left the country to go to Italy for example, when they don’t know the language or how things work – is a bit scary! I remember when I first went France; it was weird, reading the stations and signs. Even in Morocco, and Germany I went thinking I have no idea how to speak the language – but I was totally fine. I think you have to see others do the same thing."
.
.
Getting your parents to 'get' what you are doing isn't easy sometimes. In this #MeetTheTravellersSeries excerpt @simply_amina and I discussed generational and cultural influences on travelling. #KeepWading #MeetTheTravellers #WadingWade

Just interrupting your Sunday to share a photo of my brother with one of his biggest fears - a dog, on a beach in Morocco. He's normally petrified simply walking past one. Not today. ❤️ #KeepWading #kidtravellers #travelkids #familytravel #coolkids

Some evening musings from Amina, traveller number two in the #MeetTheTravellersSeries 💕 I'll be posting her full introduction tomorrow morning! Excited to share as Amina (@simply_amina) is an old school friend who I reconnected with through this. She truly had me on a high after this interview, and I hope you feel that way after reading too. Full interview is in bio, but I'll be breaking it down a little over the next few posts. There are some real diamonds in here good people, so watch close.💎📝 .
.
.
Her musings here remind me of something that someone once said to me that stuck with me forever. That was: "everyone has a right to want to improve their life". I believe that, and from seeing different standards of living and dreams from around the world, it gives me context for those words to marinate. Do you guys feel travel has made you more understand of the lives of others? I'm curious. It definitely did to me! .

"You always find older people who are very nostalgic; and they things like: I wish I did this when I was younger etc, I don’t want to be a wish person You need to jump. Like bungee jumping or sky diving, the scary moment is the moment before you jump!"

"You always find older people who are very nostalgic; and they things like: I wish I did this when I was younger etc, I don’t want to be a wish person. You need to jump. Like bungee jumping or sky diving, the scary moment is the moment before you jump!
.
Don’t think you need to be rich to travel.
.
Take a risk. You have family and friends that can help you. If things go wrong you can come home! Jump and see how far you can fly… when your wings get tired you have a safety net. Now is the moment as it is most likely the time when you have the least responsibilities.
.
Don’t live life in fear or you’ll end up living with regret. Life is so exciting we’re so fortunate. There are people born in war torn countries without access to education, we are so privileged, we are not limited, you don’t have to be restricted you don’t have to look through systematic glasses. See the world for what it is, a lot of people don’t have the opportunities."

This is Jade, offering her advice to younger travellers in her Meet the Travellers interview. This line really touched me. Who can relate? #KeepWading #MeetTheTravellersSeries #MeetTheTravellers #travelstories #traveleducation #lifequotes

"I had been to university with Jade but for some reason we hadn’t spoken that much, but of course, we had each other on Facebook and I had noticed her love of travel and positive energy; I was drawn in. Seeing her in front of me was pretty magical – I had been in a bit of a rut with my travel plans and she joked with me that she could be my ‘travel angel’ – but there was truth to it. London can be dreary on most days but the girl was radiating. While we were talking she gave me her full attention, but at the same time her eyes seemed to be constantly dreaming and reminiscing on the beauty of what she had seen. She wore a smile the whole time, and seemed so calm – even though I later learned she had the busy life of most Londoners.
.
At University Jade began a job as a travel writer, writing 10 pieces a week alongside her philosophy and comparative literature degree (a combination that did not previously exist, but Jade had requested). But that rather then stress her, thinking of the 5 senses when writing about these places allowed Jade to have escapism from her degree. So of course when she finished it seemed only right to do it for real
.
.
.
While doing part time travel writing, Jade at that point, and not unlike most of us, fell in love with places she had never been – simply by reading about them. But fast-forward to today and Jade is putting her words into practice: writing about the world for work, and travelling for leisure."
