A couple of months ago, I was invited to contribute and join the UN Women’s new digital campaign “I am (wo)man,” currently underway.
The campaign seeks to share simple stories of change due to women’s economic empowerment. The stories come from women and men from every walk of life and from nearly every country in the world.

How can I possibly sum up 2014? It was my best year yet on this fulfilling yet unpredictable journey as a freelance travel writer and photographer.
A year that took me to a different country almost every month of the year, from far-flung New Zealand to my beloved Caribbean and Central American region, and exciting destinations like Haiti.
A year in which I landed several print travel writing assignments, including for in-flight magazines–one of which required me to fly to Jamaica, research, write and shoot the feature story, all under a week’s time. Another had me write a feature article on Belize that landed in the same issue as my dear friend and colleague Lola Akinmade Akerstrom’s article (which she appropriately called a “virtual fist bump.”) And yet another had me penning about chocolate and squeezing in a Belize mention, for Every Day With Rachael Ray.
