About Me

Hi there, I’m Raya!

I’m a twenty-something female born in Canada, raised in the States, and recently moved back to Seattle, Washington after seven years in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia.

I founded Finding Parayana in the summer of 2011 during a study abroad jaunt in Ecuador, with the goal of chronicling my adventures and experiences in new places as honestly and as faithfully as possible.

I may not know exactly where my life is heading, and I may not get to travel (or even blog!) as often as I’d like, but I trust that my path will unfold and I welcome you to join me on that journey.

Thanks for visiting!
