“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It is lethal.”-Paulo Coelho (Brazilian lyricist and novelist)

Born in Canada and raised in Hartford, Connecticut as one of ten children from parents of Guyanese heritage, Gina is passionate about connecting and engaging in dialogue with people of diverse backgrounds, venturing into the unfamiliar, embracing new experiences and blazing her own path.

Her ventures have taken her to the far reaches of the globe-from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia to Paris, France to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, where she currently works and resides.
