Welcome to a new decade! I'm starting off my 2020 with a bang by being featured in the January 2020 issue of Uploader Magazine. Uploader Magazine is a new digital and print magazine designed for the content creator community. When the magazine's founder, Cheryl de Marco, asked if she could feature me and my travels in a 3 page spread in Uploader I was initially surprised because I enjoy creating travel content because I genuinely have a passion for it not because I am seeking clout or popularity. Traveling has given me exciting experiences and a way to connect with fellow adventurers. It’s so surreal seeing my name and photos in an actual magazine - I still can’t believe I have my FIRST MAGAZINE FEATURE! This has been something that I have always wanted to accomplish and now it's happened. Thank you Cheryl for recognizing and showcasing my work. What a way to start 2020! I'm excited for all this year has to offer! Check out the screenshots from the magazine feature below and if you are interested in purchasing the digital or print version please go directly to the Uploader Magazine website.
My birthday is December 29th so I usually plan a trip for my birthday which also doubles as a New Year's trip. This year for my birthday, I decided to travel to Puerto Rico again. My first trip to PR was 6 years ago with one of my college friends. This time around, I went with my boyfriend and I felt blessed to experience new adventures while I was there. Two days after we left to go back home, a 7.7 magnitude earthquake hit Puerto Rico. I'm thankful to God we were not stranded or caught in the earthquake frenzy. The whole experience served as a reminder that life is short and you should count your blessings. In Puerto Rico, we got the opportunity to sail a boat in the Caribbean Sea, ride ATVs in the jungle, explore El Yunque Rainforest and wander around Old San Juan. Overall, this birthday trip was exactly what I needed after a crazy year and it helped me relax and recuperate so I could start off 2020 refreshed!
Pictures to come soon!....
