"I always still go. I love to travel and I'm interested in a lot of different places. If I stopped myself for being the only black female I know in a place, honestly I wouldn't have shown up for much of the life I've had. I don't worry about such things that much, but I do think about them. Usually just being a woman in a place is something I'm thinking about. Whatever people think about me based on my coloring is typically 99% wrong (this is verified from personal experience), so honestly I don't even consider such opinions as relevant. That has freed up a lot of my subconscious and actions."
