Adventures with Baylee

Hey there! I’m Baylee Johnson (she/they), a senior studying biomedical engineering and medical humanities at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.

This blog is a space to share my experiences, challenges, and moments of joy as I navigate international travel and university life.
