Bio

Hi, my name is Victor Melendez, I was born in the Dominican Republic but moved to Brooklyn as very young child and just grew up in between both. I currently work as a Peer Navigator for an LGBTQ organization assisting communities at risk of contracting HIV. I lived in Santo Domingo for the 4 last years where after my graduation I spent a year backpacking through the country and volunteering for AFS Intercultural Programs. Ever since I was a child I have been obsessed with maps and going all over the globe, so much so that I’ve taken courses in 6 languages. There is a world to see and I want every single view.
