Guest Post: All About Go Girl Magazine

Kiwi writer and Go Girl contributor Shelley Greco writes about the founding of Go Girl Magazine and how anyone can become a part of this fast growing community.

In the summer of 2009, Beth Santos was sitting under her mosquito net as any other normal person would be on an equatorial island.

The young American was living and working in São Tomé e Príncipe, a small two-island nation off the west coast of Africa, far from any mental map that her friends or family could conjure up.

Because of São Tomé's size, it's often quite forgotten in the public mindset. Slavery was abolished there nearly a century ago and it often seemed that even that Portugal, its mother country, had moved on from the country's existence.

In many ways, Beth was very much alone. Yet in others, the 23 year-old was part of a new and exciting world.

This was the birthplace of Go Girl, an online magazine about the global perspective of women.

Originally created as a travel magazine for solo female voyagers, Go Girl has turned quickly into a community of 25 writers and thousands of visitors from over 95 different countries around the world.

It has become a gathering place for women to interact, network, and address issues like travel, feminism, and the challenges and benefits of living in today's multicultural, connected world.

Go Girl is always looking for new perspective, featuring articles on an array of topics ranging from acid burning in Cambodia to albanism in Tanzania, sexual health and even on becoming a grandmother.
