Changing Narratives-On She Goes Podcast

I had the honor of being on the On She Goes Podcast in November. On She Goes is a digital travel platform that helps women of color travel more confidently, more adventurously, and more often.

We had a dynamic conversation on how a Latina girl from LA somehow found herself climbing the world's highest peaks, starting from zero when not being able to run a mile, using my voice for activism, and the diversity that is still needed in the adventure space.

So Here I Am

Written for She Ventures May 2018. The time leading up to those events was a deep period of transition and transformation for me that started back in October 2017. Life took a lot of twists and turns, some expected and some not so. If I am honest though, the past 10 years have been a period of transition, transformation,  and reinvention to shaping me into the woman I am today.

Our Greatest Adventure

What is our greatest adventure? We are living it, right now, today, as we speak...it's called life.

My relationship with the word "adventure" has changed over the years. It's no longer just the act of being on an actual adventure, but a way of life. Adventure is of mind, body, and spirit elevated and expanded to new potentials within ourselves.

Getting to 50/50

While my path in life has in no way been linear. All roads have led me to look/experience the lack of equality that exists straight in the face. This is regardless of the industry I have worked, as a solo female founder navigating the capital landscape, as a philanthropist and activist speaking out against gender-based violence, and in every boardroom I have sat in.

Adventure and Transformation

It's amazing to look back and remember those moments that set your life in a new direction. I often say Adventure changes lives. I say so because it changed mine over a decade ago when curiosity peaked and I decided to take an indoor rock climbing class in LA. Little did I know, it would set me off to climb some of the world's highest peaks and on a journey of self discovery, growth, and entrepreneurship.

Changing the Face of Adventure

Adventure has the power to change lives. I know so, because it changed mine. There was a time where I could not run a mile, where I had never spent a night under the stars, where my perception of what was possible was in a sense limited. Luckily, slowly but surely the beauty of nature and adventure made it’s way into my life in my 20s but really in my mid to late 20s when I was overstressed with business school, working full time, and had multi-hour commutes. Adventure became my way to preserve balance, sanity, and creativity.

All That We Are

I do not belong in a box. I just plainly do not fit in one. I have always known this about myself. There are so many aspects that make up who I am that I would struggle to lose any part of that in my work, my relationships or in my passions. Yet, I have struggled at different times in my life by feeling I was putting myself in one in order to move forward.
