Hi, I’m Jen! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my site. I hope you enjoy my posts here on Origins. You’ve got to start somewhere right? I graduated from university in 2015 with an American Studies degree and since then I’ve felt the need to continue writing bits and pieces here and there. I love travel and writing about it, and came to realise this when I studied abroad in Long Beach, California and created a blog to document the experience. It was called five thousand miles to the beach and has since garnered over 10,000 views. I also love watching documentaries, photography, visiting art exhibitions, reading, live music, cultural events and of course writing about all these things.

You can also follow my adventures on Twitter @jenraynor24 and Instagram @jraynor. I’d love to hear from you!
