Who Are The Finalists for the Next Sole Sister?Thursday, August 30, 2012
Last month, we opened We Are Sole Sisters as a community by announcing the Search for the next Sole Sister. There were many responses from women who are as passionate about travel and sharing their adventures. 22 to be exact! Let's review the criteria:
The Sole Sisters needs an INTERN (read: Big Sole Sister) who:
- is crazy about travel and documenting her adventures through words and photos
- has some blogging background (or at least knows what HTML and SEO stands for)
- is organized and can stick to an editorial schedule
- knows how to have fun and has a unique take on travel
- drinks loads of coffee and is bouncing off walls with enthusiasm and creativity
Out of the 22, about half were still interested to try out. And to push these future Sole Sisters further on, I told them about the selection process. I will only pick the top finalists and the blog readers will vote for their favorite.
And then there were three.
3 women who are all about travel and choosing a unique lifestyle. I'll let these Big Sole Sister finalists introduce themselves:
I'm one of the co-founders of Punchdrunk Panda who now happily spends most of my time traveling, finding little ways to save the earth, and blogging. I haven't gotten it all figured out. But I'm trying while plant-eating, downward-dogging, reducing, reusing, inhaling, exhaling, doing Breaking Bad marathons, and watching Fight Club for the nth time. Read about my solo 2.5-month trip around Asia on my blog and maybe get moved to action by some of my personal discoveries for the betterment of myself, society, and the planet.

I draw, dance, write, and travel! I am a teacher by day, and a scuba diver/ musician/ photographer/ comic book artist by night! I wander the world, in search of inspiration and purpose, creating as much art and music as possible along the way! Recently, I found the wonderful world of blogging, and began sharing my adventures to others through doodles and words!
Lauren of Teacher Orange
I am a student of life and a lover of beauty. Just like our Sole Sisters Lois and Chichi, I recently left the fun and crazy world of advertising to pursue my other passion, my own art – makeup artistry. And I must mention that it was upon reading a magazine article about them during a flight back from an awesome adventure that my desire to do what I love further ignited.
I have another passion that tops my list – travel. The world is incredible, nature is amazing, food is delightful and people are interesting. Everything has a beautiful and moving story to tell and lesson to impart, and I would love to be your storyteller too.

The future Sole Sisters have introduced themselves and I think they are all perfect for the post! They fit the profile of a Sole Sister even though they have very unique personalities! So now it's your turn to decide. Let's get to know them a little better next week by checking out their videos. And then you'll find out how you get to help choose the Big Sole Sister!
