Travel Noire Feature
Travel Noire Made My Dreams Come True
It was a Monday morning, and I was sitting at my makeshift work-from-home set-up, undoubtedly drudging through another Google Hangouts meeting. My Monday’s are normally jam-packed with virtual meetings, where I’m still trying to wake up from the weekend that never seems to be long enough.
Like most millennials, I multi-task, making attempts to add my two-cents into our calls and scroll mindlessly through social media apps. But this Monday brought something a little more joyous!
I received a DM request from so meone and I didn’t know. Curiously, I clicked on it and it read: “Hello! How are you? I would like to interview you for Travel Noire if you are interested!”
I yelped — to be truthful, I might have even screamed! My favorite travel website reached out to me after hearing my “In Living Color…Abroad” podcast feature, where I shared what it’s like living as a diplomat in Guatemala. And the rest is history!
