Natasha Rodriguez is a mother, solo traveler, educator, storyteller, and so much more. She was born and raised in Washington, DC, yet identifies as a global citizen. Being raised in a multicultural immigrant household shaped her identity over the years, indirectly shaping her life’s work in diversity. When she attended undergrad, she lived with the foreign exchange and international students, invigorating her to study abroad for three semesters in Latin America and Europe all while being a young mom. As her passion for global travel naturally increased post-college, she decided to continue her travels to over 30+ countries, spanning across five continents. The numerous eye-opening experiences she gained from traveling as both a young woman of color and a mom, motivated her to create Journey Mom LLC, a woman-owned small business focused on advocacy, education, and travel. Natasha’s life mission is to travel the globe, create more community change agents, and develop more culturally competent global citizens. She holds a bachelor’s degree in social and cultural history with a specific focus on Latin America and the Caribbean, a master’s degree in education, and a diversity professional certification.
