How Jessica Nabongo Cultivated a Life She Loves Trials To Triumphs

    • Society & Culture

Globetrotter and bestselling author of The Catch Me If You Can, One Woman’s Journey to Every Country in the World, Jessica Nabongo has always valued freedom. The record-breaking traveler and Ashley reflect on their shared experiences of being raised by parents who encouraged their independence at a young age. This sense of autonomy cultivated the boldness Jessica called upon to take major risks, like abandoning a successful corporate career to explore the world. Empowered by the belief that “everything in life is a choice,” Jessica refused to submit to a fear of the unknown, choosing instead to embrace curiosity and rely on excellence in work and relationships as her “safety nets.” Nabongo urges us to live with intention and intentionally curate life experiences knowing that tomorrow isn’t promised.
