Episode 196: A Story of Rape and Healing – Interview Janiel Green

What you see when you look at Janiel Green, the creator of Culture Trekking, is hundreds of beautiful photos of her travels all over the world. She is snorkeling in beautiful blue waters, and standing on top of mountains. She’s laughing at the camera with her beautiful smile,  but the story always goes deeper. Culture Trekking was created by this vivacious young woman as a way to survive a brutal rape. When it came time to choose between accepting her fear as the new status quo of her life or making a strategic choice to choose love and connection with people around the world through travel, she chose the later.


Janiel is a physician’s Assistant, a survivor, and the creator of the YouTube Channel and website called Culture Trekking, dedicated to  inspiring people to explore through cultural connections and sustainable adventures. She’s a dog lover – she has two – Finn and Zoey, and of course, she travels in her free time.

Tune into the audio program for my interview with Janiel and hear her story of rape and healing. Beware of candid discussion regarding sexual trauma.

To connect with Janiel:






One of the things Janiel wrote is, “When you let go of the illusion of control, things will happen to you like a tsunami wave, there is still goodness in the world you just have to be open to receiving it.
