More About Emily
Emily Becker is a digital nomad who has lived in Mozambique, Mexico, and now Costa Rica. She started traveling internationally in 2014 while she was studying at DePaul University in Chicago and has visited 15 countries across the Americas, Africa, and Asia. She left the USA in 2017 when she joined the Peace Corps and hasn’t looked back! Since she began traveling and living abroad, she has become fluent in Spanish and Portuguese and not-so-fluent in a couple of other languages as well.
Emily shares her first-hand travel experiences and tips she’s learned along the way from not only visiting several countries but living there, too.
As someone who grew up in a small town in Illinois (population 2,000!), she loves visiting lesser-known destinations and getting to know the local culture. Apart from contributing to BMTM, she works as a copywriter and project manager for a content marketing startup.
