– About me –
My name is Meeka Fayetima and ever since I was a child, I was born in Brooklyn, NY to parents hailing from Antigua and Louisiana. I was blessed to grow up in a family that values travel and adventure. From winter vacations to the Poconos to summer escapes to the Caribbean, my parents did a great job in cultivating the explorer in me.
Unfortunately, my biggest reminder to value time and my dreams came during the height of COVID-19. I lost my mother and step-father within 3 months of each other and I truly hit rock bottom.
Therapy and the outdoors saved my life. I used the outdoors to heal my inner child and to manage the complicated emotions of grief.
My mission is to inspire more women to explore the outdoors and to heal themselves through wellness and wanderlust.
I’m a certified scuba diver, hiking enthusiast, and culture lover. I value authentic adventures, sustainability, and a good laugh.
Thank you for taking the time out to read all of this! I find the travel and outdoors community to be such a welcoming group. One day, inshaAllah we’ll meet on the road :
