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

It was time to move forward and take action, instead of just talking about the issues we face in our industry. My ultimate goal for the organization is to work with my colleagues to create a space where black travel professionals can grow to be their best selves. For them to have equal opportunities as everyone else, and to be the trusted organization amongst the industry when it comes to our members.

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

Lol, this is my 365 24/7 . I eat because I have to, I sleep because i have to, but when I wake up it’s back to my mission: to change the fac of tourism forever! In between times, I enjoy working out, playing with my 6 year old niece, listening and dancing to soca, and spending time with my family.

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

Currently Reading or Listening To Right Now

So I’m listening to Londrelle, who has a rap meditation album. It is soooo good and helps me center myself in the midst of all the craziness. And the SOCA of course.
