Sarah Peel is one of my Beijing friends from way back, and one of the friends who I admire the most. Originally from a small town in Ontario, she's lived near Hiroshima, Japan, Beijing, and has been in Shanghai for 6 years. We met for a drink at our favorite Beijing bar to catch up, and so that she could tell me the details of her #MigrationStory. She's got a teaching career that she's built from scratch, even though it wasn't a path that she ever saw for herself until she moved overseas, and an amazing daughter who she has raised into a pretty amazing person- all while navigating the crazy world of cross-cultural living, international marriage and divorce, and single motherhood in a foreign country. She's got wisdom to spare and a story we can all learn from.
