Traveling alone as a female in a foreign country has given me a new perspective. In some regions it was rare to see other backpackers at all. There was a tension that developed from this -- a feeling of being on your guard. The relief I felt when spotting another solo female was surprising. I would immediately feel a kinship to her, bonded by our sex regardless of nationality. The vulnerability I felt as a single woman united me with my peers and made me feel stronger.
I know that many of my social media friends are women and I'm betting that many of you are also artists (aspiring or seasoned). It makes me very happy to have you in my life. Thank you for supporting me sisters. We are all in this together xo.
