About Me

aboutJo

My name is JoAnna and I’m a born and raised New-Yorker to Trinidadian parents. I’ve had my passport since I was 8, but discovered my love for travel in the summer of 2012 after being invited to a wedding abroad. I was always consumed with work or waiting on others, but I took a chance and started venturing on my own. I’ve made several domestic and international trips since and I started my blog to document them.

In addition to writing about travel, I take pride in my West Indian heritage. I am very much interested in Caribbean and world culture, history, beauty, food, fashion and technology. I have a Bachelor of Technology in Computer Systems and currently work full-time in end-user support. It is my goal to work in an industry where I can travel and utilize my technical background together.

I am also a co-founder of Type 4 Naturals, a blog focusing on type 4 natural hair. I decided to return natural in 2012 after a 14 month transition and identify with the 4a hair type.
