Rhema Mukti Baxter is a pass-out of the Asian College of Journalism, batch of 2011 who has half a Masters degree in English Literature under her belt.
When asked to describe herself she quoted from her blog, “From the ramblings of a hyperactive imagination comes the story of a technologically-challenged, socially-ambidextrous, serendipity-loving identity. Explore at your own risk.”
Blissfully unemployed, a staunch Pre-Lapsarian, she believes in the fickleness of life and meditates on the funny side of it, preferably. A life-enthusiast armed with good humour and a backpack of nerdy ideas, she is devoted to mind-numbing activities, for example, being a Reporter. A grammar-nazi by nature, she is an arbit follower of all things odd who also loves being referred to as a whatever-preneur.
