5 things you don’t know about me 🌺✈️🥂🐶🌸 . Hi friends! There are some new friends joining me here, so I wanted to say hi! 👋🏼 I’m Nia, I love travel (just got back from the Philippines), I’m married, I’m a former #MissUSA and I live in Los Angeles, CA. For those of you that already know those things about me... I figured I’d share 5 things you might not know yet... so here we go! . 1- If I could live anywhere in the world (outside of the US) I would live in #HongKong. I lived there for work when I was 22 and I’ve been in love with that city ever since. . 2- Travel has always been a part of my life. But it didn’t start in the rosiest way. My parents divorced when I was 6, and between then and my high school graduation, I lived in 12 homes and 3 states. . 3- My first trip oversees was a Mission Trip with my church to Nairobi #Kenya. I fell in love with the people and beautiful language. I still know some words and songs in Swahili to this day! . 4- If I had to choose one city that I crave on the regular, it would have to be #NewYorkCity. There is just no feeling like it in the world when you are walking those streets. (P.s. I’m missing it extra right now with all those #NYFW posts) . 5- My amazing husband @danielbooko and I cannot wait to move into a place to be able to have animals.... but the jury is out on what we’ll have. He want a dog and I want a cat. We are currently at a standstill with our decision. What do you prefer? Dogs or Cats? 🐶🐱 . Fhew! All done. If you are new (or even if you are not) say hello in the comments below. I’ll be saying hi in the comments and on some of your pages. 👋🏼 love you guys! 🌺🥂

that moment that I realize how grateful I am that I have seen quite a lot of the world at my age. Traveling makes me richer as a person. I see very beautiful things from the countries that I visit, but of course you are also confronted with the less beautiful things when you travel, such as poverty. I realized that i stress or worry sometimes about silly things. Now these days everyone want to look perfect on social. That has it postive side but also the negatives. Because of that the grass looks sometimes greener on the other side. Life is not about status, power and material for me. Or about showing of your perfectly wealthy lifestyle. Love, health, happiness and rest in your heart! That is what matters for me! This is what i felt and thought when i wanted to drop this selfie. I doubted whether I should write this because it is so cliché again and then I thought no fuck it! This is what I feel and find! Where there is love there is life ❤️🤗 . . . . #PLDTHome #livesmart #universaltravelgirls #mu2014 #MU2014reunio #PLDTHomefibr #diamondhotel #itsmorefuninthephilippines

“That is, to be ourselves causes us to be exiled by many others, and yet to comply with what others want causes us to be exiled from ourselves.” - Clarissa Pinkola Estés.

“What does this wildish intuition do for women? Like the wolf, intuition has claws that pry things open and pin things down, it has eyes that can through the shields of persona, it has ears that hear beyond the range of mundane human hearing. With these formidable psychic tools a woman takes on a shrewd and even precognitive animal consciousness, one that deepens her femininity and sharpens her ability to move confidently in the outer world.” - Clarissa Pinkola Estés- women who run with wolves. To all the wild women out there- you must read this book 🐺 - - -📸 @jb_deleon #wildwoman #womenwhorunwithwolves #intuition #confidencecoach #psychology #archetypes #clarissapinkolaestes #girlsthattravel #philippines #itsmorefuninthephilippines #panglao #boholiday #universaltravelgirls #eskayaresort #bikini #jungle #jbdeleonphotography #holiday #asos #sethmodels #sethmodelsinternational
