An introverted tech nerd that has found a passion for exploring the world. While she’s not working her corporate job, Lenzee is planning adventures locally and abroad and creating travel-related content. As a travel blogger, she shares her experiences as a millennial, black American woman as she navigates new territory around the world.
Why a Passion For Travel?
After graduating college and stepping into the “real world”, Lenzee found herself longing for something more. Finding a life passion while working a full-time job that takes priority over your free time was challenging. Around 2015, as the influencer culture began to popularize, she began to notice the presence of young black men and women that were exploring the world and sharing their adventures on their social media.
Being inspired by the black travel movement and sites like Travel Noire and Black and Abroad, it wasn’t until 2016 in her early 20s that she obtained her first passport! Her first trip abroad was via a cruise vacation to the Cayman Islands and Cozumel, Mexico. Shortly after that trip, she decided to fully commit to becoming a travel blogger!
Since then, she has been to Africa, Canada, traveled to the Caribbean, and has made her way around the United States with no stop in sight!
