Before Jessica Rapp moved to Beijing, her peers at the college newspaper warned her not to do it, saying she’d get blacklisted from working in journalism. Jessica went there anyway and (spoiler alert) was not blacklisted. Her byline has even appeared on such widely-read sites as CNN Style and Apartment Therapy.
She shared her experiences with hosts Jenica Hallman and Sarah Scott, including why it’s worth it to try living and working abroad, and how working for her high school and college newspapers helped her find her footing.
You can find Jessica on Instagram and Twitter, @jrapppp.
