i'm lorin.

A little bit about me:

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado. Growing up around the mountains made me really appreciate nature in all its forms. At seventeen, I decided I needed an environment shift and I moved to Hawaii. Moving to Hawaii so young in my life has helped me find a love and need for travel. I am now based in Honolulu, studying kinesiology at University of Hawaii, emphasizing in nutrition.

I fell in love with nutrition when I was sixteen and knew it was something I wanted to pursue for the rest of my life. Healthy living is a practice and I want to help others find their passion for it like I did.

I created Earthly Mana to share my personal story, my travels, and to inspire those who wish to find a healthier lifestyle. I want to continue writing about the importance of proper nutrition, at every age, and the importance of becoming culturally rich by traveling the world. 

I hope this blog inspires you, like it inspires me. Nothing is as great as new experiences and I hope this blog makes you want to get out and enjoy what our planet has to offer.  Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media!
