Founder, Latino World Travelers

Vanessa's Bio
Vanessa Fondeur-Adams is a fierce and adventurous Dominican Jefa. As a NYC educator with insatiable wanderlust, she wanted her hugely underrepresented high school students to experience the world beyond the textbooks and become more global-minded so Vanessa began leading students on educational tours to countries such as China, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, and Spain. Now as founder of Latino World Travelers – a global community for Latinos, she looks to expand on her passion for travel one Latino/x at a time, one passport stamp at a time. Her mission is to empower Latinos/x to experience the world, and diversify the face of travel. In her fight to have Latinos represented in the travel industry, this past March, she launched the first-ever Latino Travel Fest with over 50 speakers in 16 different panels and 5 culturally immersive experiences. The goals are to educate the Latino/x community about how they can make travel part of their lifestyle, and provide a platform to spotlight travel creators, bloggers, and thought-leaders.
