Jewels of TravelJewels
Jewels runs the blog TravelJewels. She was born and raised in NYC which enabled her to be exposed to many cultures while growing up. Her first international trip came in college when she studied abroad in South Africa and learned about how misrepresented Africa was in the media, which inspired her to want to see even more of the world.
Quote: "Traveling for me is about satisfying my curiosity to learn more about world; to see the world and be seen in the world. The essence of travel isn't about sharing stories about one particular type of traveler — it's about the exchange between individuals and environments that can transform one's perspective. We live in a world filled with people of various backgrounds and unique experiences, and the travel industry would be remiss to not tap into this magic."
