From the USA to China to Singapore to Paris: Expat Edna
20 August, 2012 10:24
I’m Edna, an American and serial expat. I first moved abroad at 18, then two weeks after graduating university in 2010, I left the US for good. I have lived and worked in China and Singapore, and am currently based in Paris.
1. Why did you move abroad?
Different reasons each time. At 18, I moved to China for a year and a half as a break from my small-town college life and to broaden my horizons. At 21, I moved to Singapore on a whim because I had just graduated and knew that I didn’t want to stay in the US. In January of this year, I moved to Paris to follow an opportunity to further my career.
