In episode 11 we hear the fascinating story of how a young girl from an underserved community in Mobile, Alabama became a world traveler who encourages other women of color to do the same through her travel company and online community Black Girls Travel Too. Listen and find out how one life changing moment led Danny to want to travel more – and help other women like her travel more too.
Today I’m talking with Annette Richmond, fashion stylist, writer, digital nomad and creator of Fat Girls Traveling – a body positive online community for larger women travelers. Not only am I inspired by all the traveling Annette is doing (and jealous of her nomad lifestyle), I’m also deeply inspired by her commitment to promoting a more diverse representation of travelers.
In episode 5 I interview Suzanne Lacey, founder and Executive Director of Museum Without Walls, which takes middle and high school students on unique trips to explore accounts of intolerance and racism at the sites where they happened. The non-profit organization’s vision is to educate and inspire students to become informed, engaged and motivated leaders who promote social justice in their communities.
