A little over five years ago, I boarded my first ever flight to New York City with my mom.
I had never flown. My mom had never flown. And I was terrified.
But somehow, my globetrotting husband, put me at ease beforehand.
As soon as I set foot in Manhattan my life changed forever.
My life, my outlook on life changed in an instant.
I found a light in me I didn't know I had.
I felt empowered.
I felt alive.
I felt like chains broke free that I didn't even know had been holding me back.
New York City did that for me.
I could've been any other place in the world.
But it was New York.
The city that never sleeps.
The city that is so alive with beauty and wonder and history and art and nature and culture.
And. So. Many. Things.
Though it would be a couple of years later, New York is where my journey as a travel agent began.
New York gave me purpose.
New York gave me passion.
New York gave me the world.
Travel gave me purpose.
Travel gave me passion.
Travel gave me the world in more ways than I can count.
Since, I have been on 40+ flights, and last December I spent time leading my first ever group trip, showing them a place that I love so dearly, New York, New York! On my way to the airport, I looked at my husband, who encouraged me to go on that first trip & continues to encourage me everyday, and just started crying tears of gratitude & joy. When I took that first trip, I never dreamed it would be the beginning of me living my passion. I am so incredibly grateful to my family & friends—I am so grateful for your love & support; to my babies—I can’t wait for us to teach you the value of hard work and building your dreams and to show you the world; to my clients—I can’t put my appreciation for you into words; and to the group that followed along with me—it is an absolute honor to show you a place so incredibly special to me! I cannot wait to escort my 2nd group in December 2019. I have no doubt, you will fall in love as much as I have.
