Sojournies helps 9-5ers fulfill their career goals and bucket list dreams to bask in more freedom & flexibility outside the office!

Hey! I'm Sojourner White

Welcome to Sojournies!

Before I became a traveling remote social worker by profession and digital storyteller by passion, I was an unfulfilled post-grad trying to figure out what’s next. 

Studying and teaching abroad in Spain exposed me to a free and flexible lifestyle. But like many post-grads, I felt conflicted on following the “American Dream” of graduating college, getting an office job, blah, blah, blah…

Over 15 countries and two degrees later, I know this lifestyle is my real dream. I have been able to get a Masters in International Social Work, pivot into remote work, travel, spend more free time with loved ones, and become an internationally-recognized travel writer.

With a bit of guidance to find what skills pay the bills, I know more 9-5ers can explore a life outside an office. We all can’t “quit our jobs to travel the world,” but when desperate for a change we can find freedom and flexibility in our careers and beyond.

For these reasons I created Sojournies, a travel & lifestyle website that believes in a world where we do not compromise our comfort, livelihood, and flexibility for an office. I built an energizing space where 9-5ers could fulfill their career goals and bucket list dreams to create their version of a life of adventure.

Plan Intentionally | Travel Strategically | Enjoy Freedom & Flexibility

“Sojourner is an international social worker, global educator, and nomad who enjoys meeting people around the world and believes everyone has a story to tell. She found a way to combine her passion for travel and education, and her useful resources will help you chase your career dreams as you travel the world.”

Even though my mother named me after women’s rights activist and abolitionist Sojourner Truth, according to the dictionary a “sojourner” is someone who resides in a place temporarily. 

Through my name, my parents empowered me to go after what I want and keep an open mind along the way. Study abroad in Spain. Move abroad for that fellowship. Apply for that internship in Berlin. Pay to zipline in Costa Rica. Book that 52-hour train ride. 

As a literal sojourner, I encourage my community to do the same. I show them that you can live a life outside the office. And I provide the tools and tips to do it.

If you have the means and opportunity:

  • why only pursue one dream?
  • why not learn about other cultures (respectfully)?
  • why settle down when you were born to explore?

Because at the end of the day – if not you, then who? Those career and bucket list dreams await!

My desperation for a life outside an office led to more freedom & flexibility through travel. In the midst of balancing  school, career, and traveling, my travel content has been featured in Travel + Leisure, USA Today, Insider, Lonely Planet, Buzzfeed, Fodor’s Travel, PopSugar, and more.

Think of me as the overhead bin packed on a fully-booked flight. I hold your baggage of tips, advice, and resources to help you plan intentionally, travel strategically, and bask in more freedom & flexibility outside the office. But YOU are the traveler by the window seat who is prepared to get started the moment you touch down. Are you catching the theme here?  Because many others have already gotten started!

“I really like all of Sojourner’s videos!  I just got back from Europe today, traveling on a grant for teachers, but I watched all her YouTube videos before I left.”
