About Kia Marie Hunt, creator of Aspire to Amble
I’m Kia: writer, illustrator, linguist, culture enthusiast, all-round creative, and lover of travel. I recently graduated (as Student of the Year!) in B.A. Hispanic Studies from the University of Birmingham.
During my degree I spent the most marvellous year abroad in South America (Uruguay and Brazil)! I love to travel and experience different cultures.
As well as travel and culture, another of my biggest passions is language. Connecting with people while I travel by communicating with them in their native language is one of my favourite experiences. At the moment, I study Spanish, Portuguese, and a little Italian, but in the future, I hope to learn Polish, Russian, and British Sign Language too!
I’m also a self-taught artist and illustrator, I enjoy creating illustrations and art-journal spreads that are inspired by my various adventures. I like to think of my artwork as a unique language, one that only I can use and interpret.
What is Aspire to Amble?
Aspire to Amble is a blog where I combine my passions for travel, foreign languages and cultures, art and illustration, food, photography, and writing to create blog content that inspires creativity and adventure.
