GIRL GONE INTERNATIONAL FOUNDER
Going international is a beautiful crash course in life. This journey is not an easy one, whether you select it or it is given to you. In 14+ years as a GGI and 11 relocations, I have learned that is not just geographical, it is emotional. The journey is as much inward as away.
GGI has grown to give me and all those involved, joy. It made sense of a lot of my struggle and pain and learning about myself and the world. GGI is my life’s work so far. But it is not ‘mine’. It is all of ours.
I am dedicated to giving you a space, place and tools to realise your own strength, magic powers and ability to feel safe and secure in yourself and in this big wild world as you adventure out. I want to make sure your stories packed full of wisdom and experience are heard and to support you, so you do the same for others.
I haven’t found a way yet to condense what I have discovered in my topsy turvy, weird and wild life but you will find it throughout the magazine, this site and in the words and advice of others.
The only thing I truly know for sure is that on the other side of fear of your unknown lies infinite possibility and mental, spiritual and geographical freedom - and that getting there isn’t so scary if you are surrounded by peers on the same journey and have a soul friend or two by your side.

GLOBAL COMMUNITY MANAGER
ASIA REGIONAL COMMUNITY MANAGER
ASIA & OCEANIA REGIONAL COMMUNITY MANAGER
I support all of our Asia and Oceania communities for GGI and I wouldn't change it for the world. It has taught me to lead, to love, and to be open like I never would have been had it not been for them. Most of all it taught me to listen and to be patient.GGI is community, a family through and through.
I joined GGI 5 years ago in London. I was later offered the role of community manager and I had been such a fan that accepting felt as natural as walking or breathing.
I love to pass on my hard earned wisdom to younger GGI generations and learn and be inspired by older GGIs.
My GGI philosophy is : Don't overthink it, just go. If its on your mind it's worth the risk. Look at your life now, if you're blessed enough to have food, shelter, clothing and health where you are then your human instincts will ensure you have the same things when you leave.

GIRL GONE INTERNATIONAL DEPUTY EDITOR
I've been with GGI since March 2013 - but a Girl Gone International my entire life.
With GGI I feel connected and a part of a community without feeling held back. It keeps me rooted, but gives me freedom.
I founded the Rome and Abu Dhabi communities and was the community manager in Glasgow also. I now have friends in cities I haven't even been to... but will.
We’re all different, but united by a common lifestyle and worldview.
