My name is Bronwyn. I’m from Cambie area, Vancouver, Canada, and live in Bandra west, Mumbai, India.
I feel like I’ve been blessed with every opportunity, and more so with the initiative and and stubbornness to pursue them.Almost to a fault, I only do what I want to do! This has led me from volunteerism and leadership in Vancouver and Toronto to circus arts school in Montreal and Quebec city, and finally to the most recent of five long stays in different parts of India.
From eating vegetables and quinoa in Montreal, to subsisting on six rupee vadapavs and South Indian filter coffee in Mumbai. From winters at -30 degrees in Quebec city, to summers at 47 degrees in Varanasi. From living alone in Canada, to living with seven other girls in a two bedroom apartment in India. From running on beaches in Costa Rica and Panama to in the snow in Toronto and New York. Lately, from the biggest slum in Asia to the most expensive five star hotels, in the same day. From sitting in cafes in every place that I go, wondering about life and listening to others’ stories… to sitting in cafes in Mumbai, wondering about life and listening to others’ stories.
I would like to experience as much as I can.
In Mumbai, I write generally about what I observe rather than my own experiences. My story is a detail, while this city is enormous and wild and offers as much as you could take. How many million thoughts, text messages, cups of tea and different conversations between people happen here every day? That said, the smallest details speak the most. As much as every person’s experience is small and insignificant, it is also a precious story that is their own. This is mine, and I would like to hear yours.
