Who We Are


We raise money and expose students of color to study abroad experiences.


Managing Director : Sydnie B.Haywood

Born in Atlanta, GA and reared in Baltimore, MD, I have always had a love for travel!

During my travels to Barcelona, Spain in 2013, I learned so much about myself and the world. For most of life I identified myself as shy and awkward  but after traveling, I had a new sense of self. It gave a new perspective on my strengths and even encouraged me to see my weaknesses as opportunities for growth.

In 2015, I used that new found confidence to create M de la M! Now we provide scholarships to encourage more students to study abroad. Our mission is to help you

…uncover your light and travel right.
