Viola Wang (@theblessingbucket) is best known for her travel blog, where she shares gorgeous photography alongside practical tips for travelers on a budget. An advocate of slow travel, Viola has traveled to 32 countries and spent time living in Australia, Japan, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Peru. She also completed her yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India, considered the world capital of yoga.
When Viola was 10 years old, she immigrated to Canada with her family from Chengdu, China. She was extremely shy at the time and spoke zero English. In today’s episode, we talk about the many ways Viola has challenged herself over the years to overcome her social anxiety, from dance to cheerleading to solo traveling the world. Today, Viola is her own boss, running her travel blog and Instagram while teaching English, crafting, yoga, and dance classes for kids online.
