Linda Nguyen is a Texas native in hot pursuit of good food, adventure, and laughter.

She is a consummate content creator, with a few different blogs, an active Instagram feed, and her own sketch notes and #DoodlesAboutFeelings series. Previously, she ran a multi-contributor YouTube vlogging channel called Totes Awesome.

Linda has really hit the scene in recent years with her hugely popular Girl Eats World food blog, where she shares her favorite sports and eats in Austin, Texas, and as she travels around the world.

A never-ending source of kindness and inspiration, she also co-wrote the book 3 Things, with Kim Arenas, a gratitude journal that encourages readers to take a few minutes each day to stop and give thanks for three things.
