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.
