Tanny grew up in Australia, in Sydney’s regular north-western suburbs. A third-culture kid twice removed, she was raised in a family with Malaysian-Chinese heritage eating food with a fork and spoon, but not being able to recognise a Beetles song from a Beach Boys number.
Her university education in communication and international studies took her all over the world – she first went to China in 2007 to live for a year. Besides having a blast and learning some Mandarin, she also researched about ethnic minorities in China and was particularly interested in how tourism impacted their way of living. A significant moment in China was when she met a strange Dane. She spent the next year abroad in Aarhus, Denmark on a university exchange program where she first learnt a bit about the North.
At the beginning of 2013, she ended up in Greenland almost by accident. But life is full of surprises and it would boring otherwise, right? you’re invited to learn more about her world as she tries to live a life in Greenland.
