Perhaps it was growing up in the 90’s Bronx that drove me to the desire to uninhibitedly explore the world. Or maybe it was because I was born and raised in a unique Dominican community within an especially diverse American city that cultivated a special appreciation for global culture and world travel.
While studying in Europe as a teenager, I realized how multicultural travelers, often tend to have a more nuanced and multi-layered way of processing cross-cultural interactions and adapting to diverse environments.
After realizing this unique contrast and noticing the lack of diverse representation in travel, l decided to share adventures around the globe. Since then, I’ve grown a community of readers interested in my multicultural perspective on unique places and experiences through my writing and photography while highlighting my beloved Dominican heritage as an American traveler.
Today, I am based in beautiful Brooklyn, New York.
