About

Hi! I'm Kiona, Ph.D., M.S., M.A.! Just one name like Beyonce.

I'm a doctor who left the world of academia for ethical reasons. I started using travel to save my mental health in order to complete my studies and in the process realized the narratives surrounding travel were oppressive and inauthentic. Not only that, they were inaccurate and biased. So I created a website called How Not To Travel Like A Basic Bitch that is curated to uplift marginalized voices and pass the mic to locals. My professional background in statistics, research, and lecturing, and my passion for travel brings all of these aspects into my super digestive content that explores the topics of travel at the intersections of race, politics, and education.

While I do write a few Destination posts and sarcastic prose of how to's here and there, the center of my work is featured on Instagram where I create daily educational stories exploring all the nuances of travel. I am a strong advocate for diversity and re-inventing who we consider an expert and what an expert looks like.

Your subscription allows me to keep making the resources I put out into the world free for all! It also makes it sustainable for me to write for free and share my work with the world. I spent 11 years in higher education and believe no one should have to spend the time, money, and sustain abuse that I had to just to have access to knowledge.

My community has asked how they could support me as they see value in the work that I do and the conversations I have in the spaces they share. This is how.
