TALK BUBBLE CROP

I am a FIRST GEN daughter of immigrants,
a writer, and a storyteller that was born/bred in
New York City.  From a young age, I would travel with my mother to visit her family in Belize. These trips ignited my passion for my culture and my curiosity about other people around the world. My love for interacting with people across borders has led me to live and work across the African continent, Latin America, and the United States. My body of work centers on diversity in travel, global health programming, and organization development specific to cultural awareness.

I have engaged with and led independent projects and global health programs in communities of African descent in Bolivia, Belize, Honduras, Brazil, and Colombia.
