Angel has been features on the Today Show, Forbes, CNBC, BuzzFeed x Bank of America, and Creditcards.com for her work in money, travel, and technology.
Angel got her first taste of solo and budget travel when she studied abroad in Rome, Italy for her last semester of undergrad in 2012. Just like any other college student, Angel did not have enough money, and decided to apply to grants and scholarships to study abroad. Surprisingly this led her to her getting free tuition, free housing, and $7,000 in spending money to use towards her program. This then led to her visiting 19 countries and 2 continents in 7 months, which was all funded from her scholarships and grants.
Angel decided to start Pennywise Traveler because she wanted to connect the dots between money and travel. She wanted to teach people that they can save on everyday things through apps and credit cards, and use the money saved towards travel. Through her hacks you will learn how to maximize points to save money, stack, and travel for less.
In Pennywise Traveler you will also find money tips, such as tips on how to attend conferences for free, how to find free facials, and how to attend free fitness classes. Please stay tuned for travel budget itineraries and more ideas on how to save on everyday things to make a bigger travel budget.
Angel has been to 36 countries to date and all 7 continents. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, working out, and cooking.
