If you love to travel, this one’s for you. Meet Evita “Evie” Robinson. She is the creator of the Nomadness Travel Tribe, an online social community for travelers across the globe and the Nomadness ALTERnative Travel Conference – the only travel conference in the US targeting diverse urban travelers. She is also a crowdfunding consultant, keynote speaker and artist, documenting her travels with stunning photography.
An excerpt from Evie’s bio on Nomadnesstv.com which sums it up better than I can :-).
Since her first taste of Europe at the age of twenty-one, Evita Robinson (Evie), has been to over twenty countries and lived on three different continents. After a year and a half of traveling around the world, she put her degree in Television/Video Production to use, videotaping her life on the NomadnessTV web series. Evie came back to New York on a mission to bridge her love of production and a newfound need for travel.
In September 2011, she created the Nomadness Travel Tribe, an online social community for travelers all around the planet, who have the similarity of an urban background and were looking for likeminded travelers to connect with around the world. Nomadness was the first of it’s kind targeting diverse millennial travelers, in the newly coined ‘urban travel movement’.
From the success of the online group, Evie thrust herself into the world of entrepreneurship, and in April 2012, launched the business home for all things Nomadness and travel oriented, Nomadness LLC. The group now currently surpasses 15,000 international members, with over 100,000 passport stamps, and nearly 100 meet ups a year. May 22, 2015 Nomadness launched the travel web docuseries, The NOMADNESS Project, Co- Executive Produced by HBO’s Issa Rae and Evita, housed on her YouTube channel of over 200,000 subscribers.
