Pip Stewart is a mother, partner, writer and chronic over-thinker. She has a degree in History and Politics from Oxford and a Masters in Journalism from The University of Hong Kong. Pip has cycled halfway around the world and completed a world-first paddle through the Amazon Jungle. On one of her adventures she got a bit too up-close-and-personal with a sandfly and found a flesh-eating parasite munching through her neck as a result. After contracting leishmaniasis, Pip now campaigns to raise awareness of neglected tropical diseases. When not writing, she can usually be found outside with her partner, Charlie, and daughter, Willow. Connect and share your own adventures through life: @PipStewart.
