“This weekend I had plan to go out and explore Amsterdam. Yet, on a Friday night I started reading Citizen of the World by author Kathleen Parisien. The book makes you stay at home on the weekend by cancelling all your plans because each chapter triggers your curiosity and wanting to read more, more, and more “what happened next?!… Still reading on my couch yet I’m feeling as if I’m traveling the countries with Kathleen Parisien”
5 star review by Eva Gulin ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

citizen of the world kathleen parisien

It is with great honour that I announce my first e-book, Citizen of the World Part One: A Courageous Story of Volunteering Abroad, and Solo Backpack Travel in South America. As a child, I was always curious of the world, and global citizenship. Why should we be constrained to just one environment, why not travel and experience different cultures? Curiosity led me to quick my 9-5 job, and join an international internship in Brasilia, Brazil. I had no idea that 5 years later, I would be an author with an e-book!

International Volunteer

My international volunteer experience with AIESEC in Brasilia opened my eyes to the world. It was here that I learned a foreign language, Portuguese. I lived with local Brazilian families and learned their way of life. All these experiences are found in Citizen of the World, the Ebook. Read how a 2 month volunteer program, turned into a six month backpacking journey in South America.

” It is in Brasilia that I formed these cross-cultural relationships. Our energies together were striking, and the conversations we had were natural, innovative, and truly different than what I was used to in Canada. I developed a lot of patience by listening to people whose native language was not English, and I grew a profound sense of admiration for those who work so hard to learn English”
