Grounded in the logic of numbers, lost in the beauty of words and on a mission to find her hakuna matata.
Hi 🙂 I’m Andrea, the human behind the blog.
Welcome to She Roams the World, a platform where I document my adventures around the world through the people I meet, the cuisines I’ve tried and the experiences I’ve had. I first started writing about food and travel when I was 17 years old and in between waves of hiatus and rapid blogging, this website is now the age of a primary school child!
Why She Roams the World?
I chose the term “Fellowship” rather than just “Community”, because in Christianity, fellowship is not just about a community of people gathering to socialise but a community of people coming together for prayer, to share the Word to encourage, comfort, and edify one another. It is also not limited to the spiritual aspect and extends to humbling serving one another in encouragement, accountability and perhaps even more tangible day-to-day needs like food or helping to look after someone’s child.
Naturally, this brings up concerns about those who live without a family or a community to fellowship with. I’ve been immensely blessed to grow up in the family I’m in and the kind of lifestyle I have. But I know that there are many more people out there who need help, and I can’t turn a blind eye to their lives that are often hidden from the prosperous side of society. I’m passionate about creating or at least making a small contribution to positive social change. I hope to use #StoriesBreakStigmas as a platform to raise awareness about various social issues, especially hidden poverty in Singapore, and hopefully inspire a growing social impact/action from the community in future. I also hope to raise awareness about existing social enterprises so that more consumers will support their businesses and allow them to continue to create positive social change.
So thank you for being curious enough to read the “About Me” page and I welcome you to join me as I document stories of the people, advocate for social causes and write about food culture in between attempts to balance work and play!
