Hi there! My name is Marlene. Born and raised in the city of Chicago in a mixed ethnicity home, my passion from the beginning has been culture and exploring the world.
Travel has opened my eyes and mind in ways that have shaken the
core of who I am. I’ve come to learn that the world can be an incredibly broken and painful place. But, it is also a place of overwhelming beauty, goodness, and love. Travel has given me the calling to learn from
the country and people I am immersed in, to hear and understand their
story, and share it with the rest of the world. Through written,
audio, and video pieces, it is my hope to educate people on niche
communities around the globe. Too often we become consumed by our own minuscule bubble, it is my hope that through my pieces I can expose a bit of the world and broaden my reader’s minds and hearts to appreciate the great, humbling, curious world.
