New York City
Hola! I’m Laura, a Latina working to build an empire and explore the world. I came to this country from the Dominican Republic when I was 14 years old. I LOVE to travel. Seeing and learning how the rest of the world lives is inspiring to me. I’ve traveled to over 23 countries and crossed some major items off my bucket list. I work full time on Wall Street and I’m the founder of Hola World Travel blog. I enjoy being a progressive woman who breaks barriers. My goal is to inspire others to design their dream life and not settle for anything less.
