Somto Ugwueze, originally from Nigeria, now calls Los Angeles home. A long-time solo traveller, she enjoys wandering around medieval cities and discovering the best beaches around the world. Besides travel, Somto spends her time debating African politics, volunteering with a Nigerian youth organization in Los Angeles, watching Korean dramas, and finding hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants. She also has an unhealthy obsession with the music, cultures, and traditions of Spanish-speaking countries. Her favorite places are Havana, Kyoto, Tulum, and Granada, Spain. Somto's greatest travel goal is to spend a week with the Himba people of Namibia.
