PANGEA DREAMS ALUMNI BLOG
TULUM EDITION – NOV 2017
Why did you decide to join us on a retreat? What excited you most about the retreat?
I decided to join the retreat after following Lisa Homsy and Mel Vandersluis, I felt an immediate connection to these two women because we all live in Montreal. Every time I was on Instagram I was blown away with photographs, content, and stories from their creative experiences traveling and working with brands and this motivated me to find out what is Pangea Dreams?
I was most excited to travel with like minded women who share a passion for travel, freedom, adventure, escape, and the beauty of new experiences.
What top 3 things did you learn while on the retreat?
I learned how to take a content rich photograph as a creative influencer through travel blogging.
My angles in a photograph and how to pose in a photoshoot.
Collaboration instead of competition.
How did your life change after the retreat?
I got really clear on what my personal brand is developing into, where I want to travel, which brands align with my values, and how I want to contribute to global travel blogging. I have a new sense of direction in my work.
What was a highlight from your trip?
The entire week!
Being in Tulum was such an incredible experience, learning from two of the most talented boss babes Tracy Komlos and Lisa Homsy, such inspirational women and each woman shared and gave so much to us each day of the retreat. Tracy and Lisa motivated us to grow and develop our skills as travellers, brand and hotel collaborators, and be content creators, it was experience of a lifetime.
Did Pangea dreams set you up for success? What skills did you take away from the retreat?
Pangea definitely set me up for success, I took away essential skills to develop my personal brand. My direction in terms of creating content, intentions for travel and photographs, and how to collaborate with brands and hotels, and so much more.
I found a new sense of connection to the travel community, a strong desire to contribute and continue to build content with women travellers and bloggers and share the incredible experience of travel, escape, and adventure.
Which workshop was your fav and why?
Each workshop was invaluable, I couldn’t possible choose only one. All the workshops gave so much to build my growth as a travel influencer and girl boss who produces high quality content and collaborates with brands and hotels.
