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 remote social worker, train travel queen, and travel journalist, 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 20 countries and two degrees later, I know this lifestyle is my real dream. I earned a Masters in International Social Work, pivoted into remote work, travel, spend more free time with loved ones, and become an award-winning travel journalist.

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.

“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.”

– Ciara Johnson, Buzzfeed Contributor

My mother named me after women’s rights activist and abolitionist Sojourner Truth (no pressure right? 😅). But 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. Hike Machu Picchu. 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!

Who do I do this for? YOU 🫶🏾

My purpose is to provide you with the tools to check off YOUR career and bucket list dreams!

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 strategically, travel intentionally, and bask in more freedom & flexibility outside the office. But YOU are the traveler in the window seat who is ready 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.”
