Travel & Culture

Growing up with Caribbean parents, I've always been exposed to a culture outside of the U.S. My father is from Aruba and my mother is from Jamaica. I have been fortunate enough to travel to both of these places as well as St. Maarten/St. Martin. Our most recent trip was to Aruba which is known for their national tree, the Dividivi, the old fort and their natural bridge (see below).

I plan to do more traveling possibly through study aborad programs or on more family vacations. Our next family trip will be to Europe, to visit The Netherlands, where much of my Aruban family live. These travel experiences really add to my sense of adventure and make my writing well-rounded when discussing different places and people.
