When I was a little girl, my sister and cousin and I would get together and play. We all chose “play names” for our imagined romps. My sister was Clarabelle, and my cousin was some other fabulously feminine name. Me? I was Forty Brown.
No one knows how or why I came up with that name. Perhaps its a testament to my quirky, nonconformist side. Maybe I’m just weird. But one thing that’s for sure- its unique.
I’m all grown up now, but still that strange kid who calls herself 40Brown. My interests lie at the intersection of media, communications, anthropology, international development and sociology. I’ve finished a MA in International Media, but am still studying and learning every day!
The purpose of this blog is to bring these interests together, to pinpoint that intersection and flesh out connections. I hope you enjoy this eclectic gambol as much as I do.
