I’m Maddy. I moved to Paris several years ago to study and travel more frequently. I had never left the country until I was 14 years old, but ever since that first trip to Europe I was hooked on traveling. Little did I know, just five years later I would be living in the place I first visited. I was born and raised in Austin, Texas, but it wasn’t until I moved to Paris that I discovered my passion for photography, exploring new places, and connecting with other cultures. One night while sitting in a Parisian cafe, the idea for Jet Journal came to me. I personally wanted a platform to share all of my experiences, not just my highlights, and this is how Jet Journal started. I hope that the app will be a platform where users can find value in other people’s experiences and share their own stories, because everyone has something to share.
