From the start, Jen, a solo traveler on a budget, has been proclaiming that she is an impact travel influencer and a clean water initiator. Therefore, she has been using her influence for the greater good. “The Social Girl Traveler,” as she calls herself, works with sustainable brands to write stories and inspire others to change the world by promoting sustainability and awareness. Traveling with a purpose to learn about humanity’s vast cultures and writing about her emotional connections to many different people, Jen aims to discover the full potential behind humanity and share her learned secrets with her readers.
Jen also shares a multitude of travel tips and advice, including why it’s important to make friends during solo traveling trips and why travel insurance is necessary. While Jen’s blog has all of the basic criteria associated with a travel blog, she considers her blog to more of an “impact travel blog.” This is because she doesn’t just document her adventures of traveling from place to place, but rather shares her experiences of traveling with a purpose and how she learns about and immerses herself in the culture by truly understanding it.
The Social Girl Traveler revolves around Jen’s work doing volunteer work and follows her as she jumps from country to country helping build houses, supply water filters, or completing other impactful activities. She claims that her blog is about “doing good,” “being good,” and “traveling for good.” In fact, she has shared over 130 water filters between seven countries and effectively impacted over 13,500 people across those countries.
Jen’s blog shows the lifestyles of the many cultures across the world and how “badass” they truly. She believes that all of these different cultures are what makes the world so beautiful and that is what she wants her blog to convey.
