About Gabby Richardson

Hi! Welcome to my travel blog “Gabby’s Treks”.

I am a proud Canadian and an avid traveller. I have recently received my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Anthropology and minor in Criminal Justice and Public Policy from the University of Guelph. I wrote my B.A. Honours thesis about ayahuasca use throughout time – a project I found particularly interesting. I have accepted an offer from the University of Guelph to join their Public Issues Anthropology Master’s Program starting in September 2021. I have been awarded a Canada Graduate Scholarship -Master’s (CGS-M) from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The title of my proposed Master’s thesis project is “The Implications of Bioprospecting on Indigenous Peoples in Ecuador’s Amazonia”.

I have previously written articles for Her Campus Guelph. I am currently a Content Strategist, Researcher and United Nations Online Volunteering Project Coordinator at the Morobe Development Foundation in Papua New Guinea. I love interesting facts and keeping up with worldwide news. I have a great interest in international development issues and charity work, as evident in my role as Resource Person for the Cameroon Association of Active Youths and the creation of my January 2020 and 2021 birthday fundraisers.

Not only will this site reflect my career interests and passions but also have a major focus on my travel destinations, stories and advice. Some of my stand out travel experiences would be my 2019 exchange semester in Copenhagen, Denmark, backpacking around Europe with my family, participating in an archaeological dig in Zorita Castle and camping in the Sahara desert. Ometepe Island, Nicaragua is a place my family and I visit frequently.

I hope this site leaves you inspired and it fuels your wanderlust.
