Background on Martinique Lewis:
Named after the Caribbean island of Martinique, Marty's love of travel started early. Her first experience of travel outside of home was to college in North Carolina. She then ventured to London her senior year of college, where she learned of her love for travel.
In 2018 that passion for travel became a career. Marty started working for Black Travel Journey, a job that opened her eyes to the fact that black people were not very present in the travel industry, she was determined to change that and the lack of diversity in many marketing campaigns for major hotels, airlines and brands.
Her mission is to change the face of tourism forever, so that we all feel represented and see ourselves reflected!
