ABOUT THE BLOG
A Wanderer’s Adventures is a college lifestyle blog dedicated to helping young women and twenty-somethings thrive in college and live their best life. With over three years of college experience under my belt, I’ve been through basically every scenario possible regarding college life. I’m here to help you make the best out of your college years and help you go through adult life!
I know college can sometimes be like a roller-coaster, with multiple ups and downs. But trust me, when I say it doesn’t have to always be like this. You can conquer college and make it turn in your favor! Don’t just survive; thrive!
Think of me as your new BFF (because we’re all friends here!). I’m happy to help you figure out how to make the most out of your college years, and together, we can make this college experience the best it can be! I’m in no way an expert, but we can go through this together and learn from each other!
Why A Wanderer’s Adventures?
Initially, this blog started as a side project for the summer between CEGEP (a Quebec thing) and university, during summer 2015. I wanted to write about my adventures over the summer, hence the name. However, as it turned out, I realized that I had more knowledge in the college department and wanted to help others who, like me, had to go through this and didn’t really know how.
So, who’s the girl behind the blog? Well, hi, I’m Amélie! (No, it’s not Amelia, Emily or anything else. It’s Amélie, like the French movie with Audrey Tautou). I’m a twenty-two-year-old student from Quebec, Canada. I am studying communications with a minor in professional writing at the Université de Sherbrooke and I’m currently studying abroad at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield, England (a twenty-minute train ride from London). My mother tongue is French, but I’m fluent in English, as you might have guessed.
I’m a dreamer and reader. I love to play with makeup and try new beauty products. I also love to watch tv shows and movies and eat delicious food, probably a little more than I should. I work part-time at my local library. I also love to travel and discover new places. That’s why you will sometimes find me talking about books, my most recent Netflix obsessions, or my adventures!
