In this pilot episode, our Editorial & Social Exec Rukiat shares her thoughts on Rat Girl Summer, a viral term coined by creator Lola Okola.

Rat Girl Summer refers to women actively going outside, eating their snacks and showing up in random places, with only two days indoors allowed per week. Lola lists four rules for Rat Girl Summer: 1. going outside, 2. eating and ENJOYING eating, 3. killing the cringe and, 4. NO OVERTHINKING.

It's a classic bucket list approach to summer 2023, but one that isn't riddled with societal pressures like dieting, going on crazy expensive holidays or glowing up – anyone can be a Rat Girl!
