Growing up, I’ve gone on countless road trips with my family. I always thought it was cool to be in a different environment, even if it was only for a few days. Every year, we would go to places like DC, Maryland, and Virginia. I remember my grandparents even drove us all the way to Florida! As I grew older, I began to take trips with my friends for any occasion (spring break, birthdays and just because). It wasn’t until I got older that I ventured out to the western part of the country. I visited places in Arizona, Colorado, California, and Nevada and each time, I fell more in love with that part of the U.S.! Visiting these western states put me in a different frame of mind. Out there, I felt more alive and much happier. I felt a greater sense of peace and joy. The weather, the scenery, the mountains, the diversity…it all gave me a sense of nostalgia. After much prayer and what I believe to be signs from God, I decided to move across the country from Ohio. I consider my move to Nevada to be a faith move. Though I knew some people here, I essentially moved alone. I found a new job, packed up my car, and left everything I was comfortable and familiar with. Though I get a little home sick from time to time, this was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. A deeper connection to nature
My experience out West has increased my love and appreciation for natural world around me. Being outdoors, especially near the mountains, serves as a stress reliever and a technique for self care. Not only do I feel free and at peace, but it enhances my spirituality and gives me a greater appreciation for life. In order to share the goodness of being in nature, I became a Tribe Guide for Vibe Tribe Adventures
, a global adventure company that was created to encourage Black women to explore the outdoors.
