Born in Ethiopia, Lebawit Lily Girma was nine months old when her parents moved the entire family to the West African, French-speaking country of Cote d'Ivoire. She has loved travel ever since, exploring cultures, learning languages--she speaks four fluently--and studying on several continents, including Europe and the Americas. After settling in the United States and practicing law for seven years, Lily took a leap of faith and went on sabbatical to pursue her true passions: travel, writing, and photography. Her first visit to Belize took place in the summer of 2010s--she explored three districts in three weeks and fell in love with the Jewel, determined to return. As fate would have it, a year later, Lily was commissioned as an in-house writer and photographer for the Belize Tourism Board. She explored all of Belize's districts extensively, sharing her adventures through a collection of over 100 online articles, blog posts, and photo essays. More than anything, the people and the diverse cultures of Belize happily coexisting in one place struck a chord, reminding her of her own life experience. Lily later returned for long term stays, immersing herself even further and publishing freelance articles on Belize. Her writing and photography have been published by CNN Travel, BBC Travel, The Travel Channel, Afar.com, The New York Times Magazine, International Living Magazine, Travel and Escape, and American Way Magazine, among others. When not in the United States, Lily splits her time between Belize and other parts of the Caribbean.
