Traveler Bio

Hi! My name is Abigail. I’m from one of the biggest cities in the world--New York City! Being from such a loud, huge, busy city with many people, I’ve discovered foods from around the world, met people who look and speak very differently to me, and have heard stories I could only dream of.

Even though I have the world at my fingertips, I am also a traveler. In fact, my parents are travelers and their parents were, too! One hundred years ago, my dad's mom left her village on the small island of Jamaica and traveled around the Caribbean and to the United States and Canada, all as a young girl. Years later, she told her children about her journey: what New York looks like, what snow feels like, and what food from other countries taste like.

Now, I am on this small island of Jamaica, where my parents and their parents and their parents (going back over 200 years!) were born and grew up. I am learning more about what life was like for them. Join me on this journey of discovery!
