Commenna aka Coco (Founder)
Hey I’m Commenna! But I go by Coco. I made a YouTube video and was approached by a radio station producer to start a podcast on his station. I asked my best friend Marrista to join the podcast with me and everything just kind of took off from there. I have big plans for this brand and hope to one day move up to our own tv show (A girl can dream right?) Me and Marrista have been best friends for over five years. We’ve lived in three different states together and got to experience traveling abroad for the first time in March 2017 when we went to Japan! I have a huge fascination with Japanese culture and hope to eventually live there one day. I love going to movies, hanging out with my cats, food and anime. I’m introverted but I’m also really chill and easy-going. My dream career would be to have our own talk show in Japan ☺️
Marrista aka Hermione (Co-Founder)
Hello all! Marrista here. I am a baker, actress, and the co-host of The Cocoa Chronicles. When Coco invited me to be a part of this project with her I didn't know where it would take us, but I knew it'd be amazing. My goal is to take our podcast to the next level and entertain the world with our fun, real, and thought provoking content. I'm a lover of food, animals, and travel. When I'm not obsessing over the culture of the UK I can be found reading or out in nature.
How We Met
We met in the year 2013 when we both moved to Florida and worked for the Disney College Program! When we first got introduced, we hit it off immediately. Were both introverted, nerdy, geeky and quirky, so needless to say we get along great. We've lived in 3 different states together; Florida for the college program. California when we went to work for Disneyland. And Hawaii when we went to work for a cruise ship. We even got the chance to travel abroad for the first together in Japan and Marrista has taken a solo trip to London. We've got a friendship bond so strong that our future can only be promising!
Unfortunately there just aren't enough people of color traveling/millennials traveling and seeing what this world has to offer and we want to change that. For us, traveling has made us more well rounded and open minded individuals. We made some of the best memories and met the most amazing and humble people on our travels. When you travel, whether alone, in pairs, or in a group, it changes you. We want more of our peers to experience what we've experienced. Our main goal is to encourage and hopefully inspire others to take the plunge into exploration, get outside of their comfort zone, and see the world. We travel all over and feature different events in our quirky, nerdy, geeky niche. Hopefully in the future we can start helping our audience who want to travel but don't have the means, with resources to help them discover what this amazing and vast world has to offer. Our future is bright.
