Window, Middle or Aisle? This surprises most people because I am a tall gal, however I prefer the window seat when traveling - especially on a lengthy flight. I grab my neck pillow, curl my legs up and look forward to gazing out of the window until I touch down at my destination.

Where’s the last place you traveled? In a one month span over the summer, I was blessed to experience a few places both familiar and new during the pandemic. I was hesitant to get excited to travel again for leisure but I hit up Miami, Costa Rica and Jamaica all while being able to work remotely between it all. Let’s just say my tan is EPIC.

Asiah beach vacation

What does travel mean to you? Being able to travel is pure freedom and means so much to me. Travel offers me the ability to reset and enjoy the fruits of God’s blessings.

What’s your idea of a perfect vacation? Tasty street food and a sweaty, non-stop strut across the local dancefloor with my boyfriends and friends will always be the highlight of any vacation. I love to vibe and move my body to the beat and the opportunity to do that across the world truly feeds my soul.

What do you most value in your friendships? Transparency, vulnerability and respect for boundaries. These are values that I have learned and earned in my relationships. I seek new friends who align with these values in order to sustain a supportive and flourishing community.

What (or Who) currently inspires you? For once… I am stumped and I do not want to sound cliche, however my family is the driver for all that I do and will do. I am empowered and inspired to make them and the little girl inside me proud beyond words.

Asiah bathtub

What is your self-care routine when traveling? I try my best to select a hotel with a beautiful bathtub in order to kick off the trip in the most relaxing way. I grab my favorite bath soap, apply a face mask and sink in with my favorite podcast blasting from the speaker.

The holy grail of your beauty routine? Laugh if you like, Evian Brumisateur® Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray keeps me alive!

What are you manifesting in your life right now? More time for rest and quality moments with my grandmother. I am embracing this new world where I have the flexibility to hold my values higher in my life and as my grandmother ages, I want to spend time with her, learn with her and be sure to hold her life closer to my being.
