I've had the pleasure of working in several positions that required me to travel domestically within the US. Additionally, I love to travel to marvelous destinations within the US. I've actually lived in Mississippi, Louisiana, California, New Jersey, Georgia, and New York. Through either personal or professional travel, I've been to almost every state within the US.


This trip was a gift to myself for completing my bachelor's degree. It was first international trip, so I was super excited about this experience. It was also my first Greyhound bus ride (from New Orleans to Tampa, roundtrip), which I have never ever ever taken a Greyhound bus again after that experience.


This night trip was possible as a quick stop to see the falls from Buffalo, NY (work trip).

United Kingdom and France

This was my first trip to Europe with one of my best friends, Tantreese.


I fell in love with Italy on this trip.


This was a work that went terribly wrong by day 2 in the India. First and only time I've been hospitalized outside of the US. Very scary experience to be as sick as I was and hospitalized; however, without my family and friends for support. The medications provided both orally and parentally in India were not effective to control the parasitic infection I acquired during my stay in Ahmedebad. Once I returned to the U.S., it still took a month to get my gastrointestinal system normal.

Turks and Caicos, Bahamas,

This was a cruise trip. I experienced my first scuba dive (beginner scuba) during this trip, which motivated me to become a certified scuba diver.

This was a cruise trip. This was also my mother's first trip to Europe and Africa. I was happy to experience
Morocco with her, unfortunately she wasn't excited about Europe or Africa. I mean who wouldn't be excited

Africa, despite my efforts to share with her a little of what I experience traveling the world.
