On Monday, Natalie along with Casey Hudetz of Chicago, will embark on an 88-day trip that includes Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, Japan, Turkey, Thailand, Egypt and ends in Europe.
The pair of interns will document their journey with photos, videos, blog posts and tweets with the goal of inspiring other students and young people to become world travelers.
"I am still pinching myself to see if I will wake up from this incredible dream! Then I realize STA is about to make my lifelong dream of seeing the world come true. I am beyond honored to serve as a World Traveler Intern and look forward to embarking upon such a phenomenal journey," said Webb.
"I'm enthralled by humanity. It's such a neat way to see so many different cultures," said the daughter of Pam and Dr. Randy Webb.
Natalie, who has a background in journalism, appears to be a natural fit for the program. The 2008 graduate of University of Georgia with a major in public relations, said, "I have an insatiable appetite to see the world, an unquenchable thirst for adventure. When I put my two passions together, communicating and travel, it just seems like a dream come true."
With the dream comes challenge: "I think it will be demanding, but it's what I love to do. It makes it so much more fun when it's something that I'm so passionate about doing," she said.
The former UGA homecoming queen with a lifelong dream of producing or starring in a travel-themed television show said, "(World Traveler Internship) is a great foot in the door."
