About Me: Susanna M. Olson
Occupation: history geek, middlest middle child, homeschool teacher, adventurer.
Hello. My name is Susanna. I am a Christian girl incorrigibly addicted to learning and hopping headlong into spontaneous adventures. My first dream was to grow up and become a pioneer, braving the Oregon trail. Unfortunately, I was born a couple centuries late, so I’ve decided to read, write, cook, and travel the world until my time machine is finished.
The Long(er) Version:
For as long as I can remember I’ve had a deep urge to visit Nepal, Zimbabwe, Peru and
almost every other country on this earth.
After graduating high school in 2014, my plans for college
magically sovereignly fell apart. Boy am I thankful for that! An unexpected gap year gave me the opportunity to work, travel, and learn more about myself. After that bump in the road, I moved to Wales to start my undergraduate degree.
Halfway through university in Wales, I had to return home due to personal circumstances. Despite the fact that my life has consistently surprised me, I haven’t given up on my dreams. Now I’m just another college drop-out excited about forging my own path.
I am currently working to become a middle school social studies and language arts teacher. I’m a little scared (okay, terrified) by all the changes. But I’ve got the peace that this is where my Lord is leading me and the assurance that His grace is sufficient. Come follow me on my quest to become the next Ms. Frizzle!
