I’m Sienna, founder of Las Morenas de España, and I’ve called Spain home for the past 4 years.
In that time, I’ve been able to grow both personally and professionally in a variety of ways.
I’ve given TEDx talks, spoken at conferences, hosted conferences, traveled internationally and the list goes on…
But, things weren’t always this way.
You see, right out of college, I thought I had it all.
I had scored a great job, in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Brooklyn where I enjoyed my work and was living a comfortable lifestyle. I was hustling on my creative side-projects and always on the go but I got to a point where I was sacrificing self-care for “success”.
I didn’t realize it at the time but I had no idea who I was or what I really wanted.
For longer than I’d like to admit, I was just treading water until one day, I had a breakdown and realized that I needed a change.
I chose to move to Spain, a place that truly brought me joy and it was one of the best decisions I could have made.
Fast forward to now and I work for a company that I love while also running Las Morenas de España.
I spearhead a team serving 20,000 expats, students, professionals across 190 countries annually.
We have features in NowThis News, Huffington Post, NPR, BET, Essence, Travel Noire, The Local Spain and many more. Most importantly, I have a sense of balance in all areas of my life. You could say I’ve definitely found my feet.
I owe that to taking the path less travelled. Choosing to take time to heal and returning to Spain to explore a new way of life came with trials and tribulations, peaks and pitfalls. It is with all of this lived experience we curate, stories, guides, experiences, resources to support others seeking freedom.
My journey of growth has transformed my life and now it’s my mission to help you transform yours.
