Hello there! My name is Natalie Swatowski and I recently graduated from Florida International University in Miami with a Bachelor’s in International Relations and a Certificate in Latin American and Caribbean Studies. I am Polish by nationality  and was raised Edison, New Jersey. Currently, I am working as a teacher assistant in Granada, Spain and plan to return to the United States to go to law school.

I created this blog as a way to express myself, my interests, and my passions. After overcoming years of depression and an eating disorder, I am in the process of rediscovering and redefining myself. I am extremely humbled by the beauty of life and the power we have to create the life we desire.  This blog will feature a variety of topics that fundamentally define me: my fashion, my travels, my interests in cultural/currents events, and my challenges/breakthroughs as I continue to strive to be the best version of myself. 

Ultimately, I hope that my blog will inspire you, regardless of how that may be. I hope that you learn something new, even if it is a random fact that will serve you no purpose other than impressing your friends. I hope that you can relate to my story or at least reflect on yours.  

In any event, thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy my blog!
