Bio

I am an adventure-loving, life enthusiast, with an insatiable heart for wandering. I’m a Digital Content Creator and Social Media Manager and I have my own travel and lifestyle blog, World of A Wanderer, where I empower and inspire people to see the wonder in wandering. I fall in love with cities far too easily and am the finickiest foodie I know. As a 3x expat, I now call Mexico home, where I’m living la vida loca…at least until the wind blows me to some other far away land.

What Inspired You To Help Launch BTA? What Is Your Ultimate Goal For The Organization

I wanted to be the change. We (as a people) have talked about the need for change for years and it was time to stop talking and start putting things into action. As an individual, you think “I can’t change the world or this space by myself”, but then when you have 16 other power houses working alongside you and an entire community backing you, you feel as though you can achieve the impossible. That’s what we are doing, achieving what many believe is impossible – that is my inspiration and my motivation.

My goal is to see a paradigm shift in the travel space where Black content creators are able to tell our stories, be recognized for our excellence, receive the same opportunities as our counterparts and be paid accordingly.

When I’m Not Fighting For The Cause, Things I Like To Do Are

Besides traveling, I love dining out, specifically al fresco. It is my absolute favorite pastime, but with the current state of the world, not much of that is happening these days.

My Favorite Food/Drink I’ve Had and In Which Country

I don’t know if I have a favorite food or drink; however, everything I ate in Vietnam was out of this world! No matter the dish, it was a flavor explosion with each bite and absolutely delicious. Definitely one of my favorite cuisines.

Currently Reading or Listening To Right Now

I’m currently listening to Atomic Habits by James Clear.

Three Things You Cannot Live Without:

I can’t live without electronic devices (laptop & phone) it’s how I make my living, my notebook (there’s nothing like good ol’ pen & paper), and chapstick.
