My Travel Journey
In 2015, I made a challenge to myself to visit 20 countries before my 20th birthday. In January 2017, with four months to spare, Madagascar became the 20th country on that journey. In the years since, my travel journey has pivoted into being a spiritual research pursuit - endeavoring to trace my own lineage, and explore the intersections between global Blackness + indigeneity.
In total, I've been to 30 countries on 5 continents: Senegal, Ghana, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Uganda, Egypt, South Africa, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile, Argentina, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Greece, Italy, Morocco, Portugal, France, Spain, Germany, Denmark, Norway and England.
