Hi and welcome to Passports and Papers! My name is Mercedes, I was born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, I’m a proud Cuban-American, and I love creating content. I have a B.A. in Journalism&Mass Communication from ASU’s Walter Cronkite School, which is what led me to finally start this blog.
I love travel (PASSPORTS) and scrapbooking (PAPER), now do you get it? Most of my scrapbook pages are about my travels and most of my free time is consumed by planning trips, crafting, and spending time with my loved ones.
I’m the oldest child of three, fun fact my brothers are twins, and shoutout to my parents for letting me follow my dreams. Thank you to my best friend Henri of six years for traveling the world with me. And last, but not least the newest member of the family: our golden retriever Havana, who you can follow on Instagram @havanasantana. And yes, she is named after the capital of Cuba.
I hope you all enjoy my passion project.
