About Me

Hey! I’m Rebekah Makinde. I’m a London based writer, photographer and a wannabe traveller. I also have endometriosis, a chronic illness that can make travelling hard, but I've come up with a few tricks to make it work! You can read more about that here.

Most days you can find me in the office at my 9 to 5 or with my head in a textbook studying *stressfully.* I’m on the Finance Fast Stream Civil Service graduate scheme, training to be a forensic accountant and working hard to be fully qualified by the end of the year. I also have an undergraduate degree in Law and a Master’s in Public Policy. 

I’m known for being nosey and inquisitive, which works really well for me both in my working life and personal life. I’m curious about the world around me, which is one of my motivations to travel: to learn through cultural exchange. 

My friends call me the girl ‘with 100 extra hours,’ because I’m always researching or getting into something new (like photography) or in the middle of another country where I don’t know a single soul! 

I’m not much of a planner, 10 years ago I had no idea that I would be so comfortable solo travelling halfway across the world, but now it’s almost second nature to me. Through this, I aim to serve the world by making connections, researching and travelling to new places and sharing the best, most cost-effective way to do it!
