Evita Turquoise Robinson graduated from Iona College in 2006 as her undergrad Commencement Speaker, and now holds a Board of Director position with their Alumni Association.
Since her first taste of Europe at the age of twenty-one, Evita Robinson (Evie), has been to over twenty countries and lived on three different continents, including France, Japan, and Thailand. After a year and a half of traveling around the world, she put her degree in Television/Video Production to use, videotaping her life on the NomadnessTV web series. Evie came back to New York on a mission to bridge her love of production and a newfound need for travel.
In September 2011, she created the Nomadness Travel Tribe, an online social community for travelers all around the world, who have the similarity of an urban background and were looking for likeminded travelers to connect with around the world.
From the success of the online group, Evie thrust herself into the world of entrepreneurship, and in April 2012, launched the business home for all things Nomadness and travel oriented, Nomadness LLC. The group now currently surpasses 10,000 international members, with over 30,000 passport stamps.
Based on the success of her business, Evie was named one of Clutch Magazine’s “11 Black Women Inspiring Us To Travel”, and the Tribe’s first ever NomadnessX group trip to Panama was featured in the July 2012 Issue of Ebony Magazine. Evita was also featured in the Spring 2013 issue of UPTOWN Magazine, and January 2015′ Daily Beast. Evie has been featured as a travel expert on NewsONe with Roland Martin, Arise TV, and abc7 in the DMV area.
May 22, 2015 Nomadness launched the travel web docuseries, The NOMADNESS Project, Executive Produced by Issa Rae, and housed on her YouTube channel of over 200,000 subscribers.
On August 3rd, 2015 Nomadness officially announces a merchandise partnership with the popular line, Rue 107, for their first ever swimsuit collection, again innovating the reach of the travel group.
The continuation of innovating the urban travel space has landed Nomadness in the pages of The New York Times, Mashable.com, and with airtime on Arise TV, News One with Roland Martin, NBC4NY, and most recently MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry Show.
