April Bond Scully

A Canadian expat in San Francisco, April is ever-grateful for being born on a sunny day. For as long as she can remember, she's had an affinity for blank books and empty boxes. The blank pages soon became a canvas for words and reflections, evolving into a passion for journaling, while the boxes filled with treasures from a collection of life experiences. Having traveled to more than 25 countries and connected with people of all ages and cultures, April wholeheartedly believes that as human beings, what we have in common far surpasses any differences between us. April is blogging with grand hopes of cultivating more empathy and resilience in the world. Follow her blog "In Words & Upwards" at inwordsandupwards.com or connect on Twitter @InWords_Upwards.
