Introducing: Kayla Zapata Fory

Kayla is a native Californian of Afro-Colombian roots with family on four continents and cousins seemingly everywhere. Her passion for travel started after an amazing summer study abroad to Havana, Cuba. The more Kayla traveled, she realized the exceptional fluidity of identity within different cultures and environments. Kayla was inspired by these experiences to launch a bilingual travel blog called Tejiendo Experiences that curates content from the African diaspora and shares her adventures around the world.

Kayla is passionate about promoting international social enterprises and sustainable development. Since graduating with a B.A. in International Relations from Tufts University, Kayla now lives in Accra, Ghana where she works for an ethical fashion brand supporting local artisan communities. She hopes to apply for an MBA program to learn more about scaling social impact in emerging economies. When she is not solving international fashion crises, you can find Kayla drinking coconut water, hunting for new fabric deals or reading at the beach around Accra.
