If you thought Emma Watson was a strong advocate for feminism, you haven’t seen Milly Pontipee flip a table while screaming in the faces of seven rowdy boys.

My 18th year was filled with golden waves of happiness, cracks of light disappointment and long ribbons of memories to cherish. Throughout the year, I continued to grow and evolve, learning a plethora of lessons that one generally masters in their first year of decisions and independence. To everyone stepping forward into the next phase of their lives, this list is for you. Continue reading “18 things I learnt being 18”
