Hi! I’m Rohan and I am the next publisher and editor for the Last Word! I am also a Politics and Current Affairs writer taking particular interest in US politics, with an even further emphasis on elections and policies. I'm dual-national: I’m from Washington DC in the USA and London in the UK. However, I have lived in Singapore for 8 years! My favourite subjects are History, Drama and Latin - but, of course, I like English as well!
