Quote: "As women of color, I'm pretty sure just like me, many others have been looked at suspiciously! We have to go that extra mile to prove that we're just traveling and mean no harm even though we pay the same price for every experience! While many content creators create fabulous, dreamy content, unfortunately, even today, the online space is lacking people of color who write about it. When travelers of color share their journey, they aren't just showcasing brilliant writing or photography but showing others just like them where they are welcome. This is crucial as for many traveling is sometimes a 'once-a-year' thing, and negative incidents push people away from it rather than encourage it!"
