Hello There! I am Priscilla Akayla, the creator of For The Wxnderers. I am also a student, a traveler, an art appreciator, and, sometimes, even a poet. Though my love for writing seems ancient to me, I started For The Wxnderers in August 2016 to serve as a haven for my experiences abroad as a black woman, for my commentary on socio-cultural and global phenomena, and for my exploration of different realities.
As a Wonderer, I indulge in both the airy and the uncomfortable in strive to make sense of this world’s individuals, collectives, and lessons. From here, I believe I can create my own unique space within its complexities and also respect the coexisting mosaic realities.
As for the Wonderers, they think. They investigate. They challenge. They question. They search for truth… They are leaders, thinkers, innovators, and creators– the greatest of them.
As a Wanderer, I only place my curiosity before me and mute my ambivalence, in hopes of trading comfort for something more satiating– growth.
To me, Wanderers no doubt appreciate travel. But they also don’t view barriers as permanent setbacks or the status quo as something they MUST fulfill… They are dreamers, free spirits, and conquerors– the sincerest of them.
As a Wxnderer, I explore and embrace both of these elements that I have found within myself– and I share them here so that maybe you can too.
Wonderer + Wanderer = Wxnderer
Through For The Wxnderers, I seek to educate and inspire by creating a space for lovers of travel, culture, the intricacies of the globe, and everything in between. My sincerest hope is to inspire people, especially women of color, to wonder, to wander, and to flourish as the greatest version of themselves.
So come join the adventures…
But you must Stay Curious.
