A few months ago I entered an “Experts Among Us” contest on SheKnows.com to become a regular travel writer on their site. And after several rounds of submissions, interviews, and voting, I found out that I was selected as one of the winners – YAY! I’m so excited to take my experiences and tips and bring them to a larger audience.  One of the questions that I was asked during the process was why I love traveling in the first place. Such a simple question, and after some thought I was able to clearly figure it out. The main reason I like to explore is primarily due to my own diverse background. My mom is Jewish with Eastern European roots, and my dad is from Barbados. Growing up in a diverse household always had me very culturally aware, and open to other worldly experiences. So thanks to my parents for coming together to create me (and my amazing sister!), SheKnows.com for giving me a chance to share my perspectives on my travels – AND all of my family, friends and co-workers who took the time to vote for me during the contest. XOXO
