My name is Stephanie Cutler, and welcome to my blog Hometown Passport! I’ve spent the past 14 years in Austin, Texas, where I’ve met the most magical people and had the most amazing experiences. But, I’ve always loved globe-trotting around the world, from Rome and Beijing to New York and San Francisco. I now attend Duke University in Durham, North Carolina with dreams of working internationally in law, economics, human rights, government… and much more. Aside from my studies, I’ve found passions in fashion, photography, travel, writing, and helping others. Through the encouragement of the most supportive friends, I started this blog to share the many things I enjoy with others that love them as well.  I know the power of words and pixels to spark an idea, a desire, or a smile, and I’d like to play even a small part in the internet wildfire.

Hometown Passport is a blog dedicated to discovery: from advice on studies and college to travel and fashion guides and everything in between.  It can help you be a tourist in your own town, find peace with the unfamiliar, and feel confident as you step outside your comfort zone.

I hope you all enjoy following along as my journey continues!

With love, Stephanie
