Hi, I'm Rebecca, the creator of The City and Me

I came up with the concept of The City and Me because I loved meeting new people, trying new things and exploring, but I just didn't know where to find these people. So I created this community and resource for myself and all those out there who want to make the most of their spare time and experience more. 

I'm a connector, I love to build communities, run events, curate content and resources to provide opportunities for people to connect to new people and places.

My vision is to make it the norm to jump online or go to an event and approach a new person to share an activity or experience with. 

I hope you find this community and resources helpful to meet like-minded people, make friends, find inspiration to try new things, experience Christchurch and make the most out of your spare time. 

I'm also the organiser of Female Friendships Christchurch Meetup. I created this meetup when I first moved to Christchurch, and it's been a wonderful way to meet new people and make friends. But now I want to start my own community to help others on a more one on one basis and events.


The contribution of these special people helped me to provide you with this opportunity.
