Rowena Curtis, creator of the leather-bound Sojourner journal, began her business in spring of 2015.

Sojourner sales quickly took off over Instagram, with orders coming in from France, London

Belgium, Australia, Singapore, and the United States within the first couple of months.

Since June of 2015, Rowena has been able to use a percentage of the funds raised from the

Sojourner to help support mission workers in Ukraine, Albania, Turkey and other countries

around the world. As an immigrant from the Philippines, Rowena arrived in the United

States when she was 10 years old. She has experienced freedom and joy through keeping a

journal and encourages others to pursue “documenting life as it happens.” Journal your daily

thoughts, struggles, travels, moments and memories with a personal, handy (and really cute)

handmade book: The Sojourner!
