Let me give you the tweet version and not the blog version about me.
Here we go.
•Had a stroke at 21 in my senior year of college.
•Graduated from college 4 years “late” after the stroke.
•Took my first trip abroad at 26.
•Shot off to China to teach that next year.
•Slid into Saudi Arabia to teach English at the largest women’s university in the world. (There was a monorail on campus, y’all!)
•Made it to my 7th continent, Antarctica, at 29.
It’s a delight to greet you. I’m Karissa Denae Johnson and I’m an explorer. My heartbeat cries #LetsGoDoBe everywhere I go.
“Go into everywhere that you must go. Go and do everything that you must do. Go and be everything that you must be. That is our anthem: Go. Do. Be.” – kdj
Can you IMAGINE where we’ll go? What we’ll do? And who we’ll be?
Can’t wait to see where life takes us.
Ciao for now!
P. S. Snag my eBook for a buck at sevenby30.com/books. It’s been read on 6 continents. Still trying to get those penguins in Antarctica to crack it open.
