Our blogger of the month is Jumoke ‘Smiley’ Munu!
Driven by the need for a more efficient way to show people the places she has been to and another need for a group travel/hangout for those who aren’t fans of traveling or experiencing adventurous activities alone but are stuck with friends and family who would cancel at the last minute. Jumoke Munu decided to take matters into her own hands and create a Travel Experience Company that would cater to explorers and group travel lovers.
Jumoke Munu is an award-nominated traveler and has been building and growing The Smiley’s Place Travels aka TSP Travels and TSP Travels community; Chop Life Trybe for almost 3 years now. Jumoke has also been showcased due to her tremendous work in travel and tourism in places such as Deutsche Welle, New Telegraph, Leadcity Radio, and Sarahtoyin.com.
Jumoke holds certifications in Mass Communication and Tourism Business from NIHOTOUR & Goge Africa. And is committed to showcasing the beauty of AFRICA one country at a time
