One of the things that I dig about working at Roadtrip Nation is the backgrounds and stories of how we all ended up here working together. We all come from different walks of life, and it’s pretty cool to think about the little tapestry we weave of our own personal stories, in addition to the stories we get from Leaders everyday. The people working here are on their own journeys to define themselves, whether it’s Willie coming to Costa Mesa from Idaho and working his way up from production intern to documentary series director, or Dan, our very own Dos Equis guy (The Most Interesting Man in the World), who’s traveled the world, worked in oil fields, and held the sound shield on the sidelines during the Rose Bowl. These personal stories and histories provide perspective for my own life, and teach me daily, while inspiring me to push further and harder with the work that we do.
With that being said, say salutations to Sasha, she’s splendid! Sasha is the newest member to Roadtrip, and she’ll be working with social media to create content for us.
Sasha comes to us originally by way of Houston, Texas, but has been living in Long Beach for a while now. I had the chance to pick Sasha’s brain for a bit to hear her story, and just like the folks here, she’s on a pretty cool journey of her own that has led her here. Growing up, she was a self-proclaimed “bun head,” eating, sleeping, and breathing dance, and eventually, she made it all the way up to teaching for the Houston Ballet. After doing that for a while, she decided she wanted to see and experience more. That led her out here to California, where she is now studying at Long Beach State. She’s the Editor-in-Chief for a campus magazine, and most definitely an expert on Long Beach’s culture and happenings! But anyhow, I just wanted to give you a little intro, as Sasha will be writing blogs, and sharing more with you all!
