Up next in the My Personal Legend series is Jessica A. Beck from New Hampshire via Boston.
Jessica speaks eloquently about her experience as a very young girl when she almost drowned. Luckily she was pulled from the water but something from that experience stayed with her and informed her curiosity, powers of observation and sense of self, for better or worse it has stayed with her. Read more about her Personal Legend in Looking Up.
Jessica is a contributing editor for Literary Traveler and her passions are poetry and, of course, travel. She has explored much of Europe as well as parts of South Africa, and Asia. Jessica is particularly interested how place and history manifest inside of each of us, and their influence over the way we experience physical reality.
