“Hi Sis, I’m Tamaya, and I’m no different than you. We are more alike than you think”
I’m a believer and a wife. A dreamer, an educator, and a world traveler who firmly believes in living life to its fullest. This belief became even stronger to me 13 years ago when I lost my mother to sudden death, and my father two years later. I was faced with the brevity of life and the reality that the time to live is now. Or possibly never.
In 2012, Italy was the vacation I needed to do just that. I sought out to find a deeper meaning for travelling besides the joys of entertainment and shopping. So I went alone and made the decision to let my guard down. I sat and engaged in transparent conversations with strangers and women whom I had just met that turned into meaningful relationships. My quest for adventure brought a greater return than I had ever imagined and provoked my inner desires. Traveling has given me what I needed to gain control of my everyday life by helping me to reconnect with myself and others. I was able to move forward to the next stage of my life’s journey in hope and wholeness even after such sudden tragedies.
That is why I believe Sisters and Suitcases is vital to women. When you’re able to travel and explore intentionally, your mind is given the space to shift. Exposure to new cultures and people helps to create a healthier perspective on how you view the world around you. Today, as the Founder of Sisters and Suitcases, I am privileged to combine all my life’s passions by offering a space where women can fully experience the joy of being the best of themselves—strong, sensual, smart, silly and full of life! My goal and cherished purpose is to help you unravel the gift of travel one experience at a time.
