Advisor - Rachel Hillebrand


I am passionate about everything international, creative and outdoors.

My travel style

I like a mix of off-the-beaten-path, and visiting iconic places. I am perpetually adding to and checking off items on my running bucket list. Austin-based; you can probably find me hiking.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Experiencing penguins on the beach, sailing off the windy Cape and visiting wineries in Cape Town.

  • Spending a whirlwind 24 hours running around London experiencing as much as possible (and all the fish and chips).

  • Camping under the stars and getting surprise-snowed on while sitting in a natural hot spring on the border at Big Bend National Park, Texas. 

  • Experiencing historical and beautiful Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia and learning about the Gullah Geechee language there.

Dreaming of:

  • Backpacking all over Europe (France, you're first).

  • WWOOFING on a coffee farm in Costa Rica.

  • Visiting the blue city and tasting authentic mint tea in a home in Morocco. 

  • Namibia or New Zealand for hiking!

One thing I can't travel without...

My green REI backpack that has been all over the world with me! That and a reusable water bottle clipped to my backpack with a carabiner.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I arrived to teach ESL in Bangkok the day a military coup started.

  2. I am a professional ballet dancer. 

  3. I debated current world topics at the United Nations in NYC.
