rachel's life around the world (and the corner)
Every year for the last four I travel 9,585 miles (15,425km) from sunny, humid island-home Singapore to (comparatively) weather-erratic Philadelphia. My life is divided between the metric and imperial, East and West, and writing styles. (Like whether I should include a ‘u’ in “color” or not. Maybe I kid.)
Because while I’ve learnt all my rookie reporting skills in Singapore, it’s at the University of Pennsylvania (where I am a senior) that I have discovered the coolest things about writing, and what makes a piece intricate and alive.
In spite of how much of my life and future career is tied up with writing, I am awful at documenting my adventures in Philadelphia and my travels around the world.
So this is, approximately, my one billionth attempt to create an online record of what I’ve done and where I’ve gone, for myself and friends + family across the States or around the world.
