Thanks for stopping by. My name is Kimberly – or JustKimOnline as I am more commonly known on social media. I am a mentally retired senior government executive turned social innovator, entrepreneur, and professor.
Several years ago, I jotted down an idea to travel the country and visit all 50 states by my 50th birthday. I used to be an avid long-distance road tripper, so I have traveled the country quite a bit and have visited most of the states. This idea, however, was about a little more than just visiting all states. It was rooted in creating intentional experiences to learn, visit, and experience black culture, history, and experiences from various perspectives around the United States.
Last winter, I pulled out my trip planning journal and set a deadline to get started. Too many years have passed and my 50th birthday is 3.5 years away. So without further delay, March 2019 was set as the official launch of my “50×50” journey.
I shared my goal with a few people and they asked that I document my journey. This space was created so that I can chronicle and share my experiences with family and friends. I do not know where this journey will take me emotionally, physically, spiritually, or mentally. Therefore, I am committed to letting this online content organically morph into whatever my journey calls for at that moment.
