I grew up in a small village in the middle of nowhere. I often joke with my friends that I grew up in a field (which is not far from the truth). It was the kind of village where kids were safe doing whatever. I have fond memories of running around town with my best friend and climbing trees without parental supervision when I was as young as eight.

Other than the usual ‘don’t talk to strangers’, my parents never really had to talk to me about safety. When I moved to university, I suddenly found myself living in a large city that was not as safe as the village I grew up in. Here is what I do to stay safe in a big city.
