Olga Maria of Dreams in Heels
Olga Maria is a digital nomad who runs Dreams in Heels and Latinas Who Travel. She's a free-spirited New Yorker who was born with wanderlust and a passion for food, coffee, and wine. Her goal is to inspire others to take the plunge into solo female travel and create a community for Latinas to be encouraged to share their journeys.
Quote: "The travel industry is one that hasn't been known for showcasing much diversity among its writers. I think now, in 2018, it's time for more representation by people of color, but more so women of color, to document and showcase that we not only travel, but that we can travel safely, in comfort and style, and do it in a responsible way. For me, by us documenting our travels, it's just one of the ways we can give back to our community! Let's inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and go experience for themselves what the world has to offer. As Latina women, we are so family-oriented, it's natural to share our experiences with others, the same way that family photos and stories are passed down to future generations. Traveling can transform your life forever. Plus, our unique perspective belongs in the world!"
