Damaly Gonzalez is the Global Ambassador of the Women in Travel Summit for 2017
Damaly Gonzalez, founder of BackpackingtheCaribbean.com , won the Women in Travel Summit Global Ambassador contest by way of the people’s votes. She is a Latina that will represent the women in travel industry for the Women in Travel Summit taking place on April 21-23, 2017 in Milwaukee.
“I’m honored to be WITS Global Ambassador for 2017. I’m grateful to be representing a diverse group of women travelers globally. Congrats to the other nominees. You were already winners. And thank you for everyone who believed in me,” said Damaly Gonzalez, founder of BackpackingtheCaribbean.com.
Damaly will be the face of the summit. Her travel pictures will be on all of WITS ’17 promotional materials such as posters and in social media. She will also be attending the summit, take part in all the activities and be honored in the WITS ’17 Global Ambassador party.
Damaly founded Backpacking the Caribbean in February 2013, after she backpacked throughout Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico alone for almost four months. Noticing the lack of resources to help plan and understand the Caribbean outside touristic traps and realizing the challenge of navigating the islands she returned and created BackpackingtheCaribbean.com.
