i’ve created a life that lets me experience as much as possible.
hi, i’m journey temple and i want to travel the world. most of my life i’ve lived in tucson, arizona. up until this year i lived a fairly standard life with little access to alternative education. i am now 17 and breaking down my city life barriers by living in the mountains of colorado with 13 other interdependent young adventurers. group living has allowed for a unique set of challenges that nurtures me and is forming me as a individual.
i am growing. i feel more and more connected to nature everyday. i am challenging the ideas society has implanted in me. i learn continuously how to create healthy relationships. i eat fresh foods. i engage in deep conversations with peers and mentors equally. i hear and am heard.
the things i enjoy cover a wide array. while home i love my job working with kids. the art i practice includes; poetry, sketching, watercolor, and an abundance of photography. i also love being outdoors hiking, biking and enjoying the simple pleasure of walking as a main mode of transport. i also dabble in partner dancing and some crossfit, parkour and acrobatic circus.
i love learning and community and the world i face. follow my life, writing, and art along the way.
