  • Why do you travel?

    It was initially only to visit my family and friends that are spread all over the world. Now when I travel, it’s a way to decompress within the present moment, but without the everyday normalities and stressors in the way.

  • What’s one thing you never travel without?

    A translation app on my phone. Some of my friends and family do not speak English or are too shy to. The app I use lets us speak to each other and gives us a translation to read back and forth.

  • City or country?

    City for the most part. It makes me feel more comfortable when I am surrounded by diverse people.

  • Do you like traveling solo?

    It is so peaceful to travel solo. It makes me stay present with where I am and who I am at that moment. Sometimes the mind can get stuck in the past or future. It feels good to independently appreciate where you are.

  • Train, plane, or ship?

    Trains. It is the most calming way to travel.

  • What is your favorite book?

    “The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born” by Ayi Kwei Armah. It is a difficult read, yet it is a perspective-altering experience.

  • What is your favorite time of year to travel?

    Spring! Flights are usually cheaper and the weather is always amazing.

  • If you could take a 3-month sabbatical, where would you go?

    I would travel all over Africa. I would love to spend time in Senegal, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Rwanda, and so many more.
