The Sophisticated Life – https://thesophisticatedlife.com
I refer to myself as a “Travel Blogger by Day, Physician by Night”. I love pursuing my passions of traveling the world exploring different cultures, cuisines and wine and at the same time I have practiced medicine for over 20 years. I currently take care of babies to adults in hospitals across Atlanta Georgia.
What Inspired You To Help Launch BTA? What Is Your Ultimate Goal For The Organization
As a travel content creator for over 6 years, I have witnessed very little diversity in the industry. After attending conference after conference and applying to campaign after campaign and seeing the same “look” of speakers and influencers, I realized enough is enough. I felt like screaming this as loud as I could and thankfully I found 17 other people who wanted to scream it with me. Hence, the Black Travel Alliance was formed. I am eager to actually see real change in the travel industry. We are ready to hold brands and DMOs accountable to their promises of Diversity & Inclusion.
When I’m Not Fighting For The Cause, Things I Like To Do Are
As my fellow Jamaicans would say, I am a “busy body” (lol).Besides the constant demands of my travel blog, brand & business & working night shifts at the hospital, I am currently pursuing a wine certification, I organize an online & Atlanta based book club and I plan trips & events for my husband, family & friends. Since COVID19 virtual events & speaking engagements have taken over my life!
My Favorite Food/Drink I’ve Had and In Which Country
Massaman Curry in Bangkok Thailand but everything I ate in Thailand was amazing!
