Hey there! Thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Jada Gossett and this is Mindful Banter Travel. The name of the blog came from my first blog (now deactivated) Mindful Banter, where I mostly just talked about psychology representation in the media. I could change the name of this blog now, but I’m just too attached :3

So here are the basics: I’m a US Native, casual dog cuddler, polyglot and someone who gets bored very easily!

I started this blog to document my travels while doing my study abroad in South Korea in Fall 2016, but I have a lot of other plans for this blog now that I’m home. I’m not a super-frequent blogger, but I do try to post at least once a month or so. Expect to see informational posts, stories of my adventures, and lots of pictures!

I’m currently in my fourth year at Drexel University studying Psychology and an overachieving polyglot. I took AP Spanish in high school and a 300 level Spanish class in my freshman year of college but got really bored of it. Since most of my entertainment is in Korean with no subtitles, I turned to Korean classes and ended up at SNU for a semester. At some point, I’d love to do a year-long service in Samoa learning the language and experiencing its people’s rich culture!

There are a lot of plans for this space, so make sure you stay tuned by following me here or on my social media. See you out there!
