Named after the Caribbean island of Martinique, Lewis’ love of travel started early.
“My mom is my biggest inspiration,” said the 32-year old, fondly remembering the annual international trips that her parents took her siblings on.
But in 2018, that passion became a career. Lewis started working for Black Travel Journey, a job that opened her eyes to the issues surrounding black travel and the lack of diversity in many marketing campaigns for major hotels, airlines and brands.
“I realized it’s not just black, it’s diversity as a whole…body consciousness, queer travel,” said Lewis. “It’s not just me feeling this way.”
