HOW THE BLOG BEGAN

Del Bronx Pal’ Mundo

Perhaps it was growing up in the 90’s Bronx that drove me to want to uninhibitedly explore the world. Or maybe it was because I was born and raised in a unique Dominican diaspora community within an especially diverse American city that cultivated a special appreciation for global culture and world travel.

While studying in Spain 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.

Further realizing this unique contrast as well as the lack of diverse representation in travel, as I went on to travel to over 45 different countries, I decided to share my multicultural perspective on unique places and experiences around the world through my writing and photography while highlighting my beloved Dominican heritage as an American traveler.

Today, I am based in beautiful Brooklyn, New York.
