Olivia Christine blogs at O. Christine and left the corporate world to travel and invest in her wellness. She was diagnosed with lupus nephritis when she was 16 years old but didn't want her health to dictate her path, so she saved up money and left on a lifelong adventure that allowed her lupus to improve to the point of going into remission.
Quote: "Not only is it important for us to document our travels and inspire women of color who believe travel isn't a possibility, [but] it is essential to take control of the stereotyped narrative that whitewashed media sells to the world about women of color. If they aren't going to represent us accurately — if at all — we need to represent ourselves. We need to force the industry to put their research and advertising dollars to work and better serve our needs as travelers."
