#JOURNEYTOME .02: TRACY PHILLIPS

“Finding myself has been my constant journey — it has always been a big part of me to question my existence and have different epiphanies and realisations at different stages in my life. I believe it’s the same for all of us? I think I was seven when I had my first existential crisis, and probably every other year since, ha.”

WELCOME TO THE NOVEMBER EDITION OF #WOWWOMEN. This month, Wear Oh Where has partnered up with us and together, we have embarked on a very special journey — the #JourneyToMe, which is about celebrating the self.

In this series, we chat with inspiring women of different backgrounds and ages (from the 20s to the 60s) — each one of them extraordinary in her own way. They speak candidly about their journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and the courage and confidence to be themselves, unapologetically.

WHO: Tracy Phillips

She’s the director of Ppurpose, a new joint venture with creative agency TSLA that focuses on creating culturally evolved programming. She is also the curator/host of The Lush Life on Lush 99.5FM, and contributing editor at Buro 24/7 Singapore. The former marketing manager of Zouk, now in her 30s, describes herself as “a curious joy crusader who loves to feel connected to people and the world around her, finding out more about herself in the process and embracing the growth that comes with it”.

HER STORY:

“Finding myself has been my constant journey — it has always been a big part of me to question my existence and have different epiphanies and realisations at different stages in my life. I believe it’s the same for all of us? I think I was seven when I had my first existential crisis, and probably every other year since, ha.

There have been many experiences in my life that have shaped who I am today. Part of the beauty of being in your 30s is you’ve had enough time to experience life in all its technicolour and richness.

I think my parents’ divorce, which took me to Australia with my mum and her battles with bi-polar disorder, was one. I had to grow up faster because her condition meant we often had a reversal of roles, with me as the caretaker. I think this nurtured my adaptability, compassion and mediation skills, all of which I count on today.”
