The Food Section has been lucky to pick up a few prizes in its first two years, but I’m not sure any accolades have made me prouder than my rating on Airbnb.

Journalists are never popular, and women journalists are singled out for online abuse more frequently than their male counterparts. So, it’s incredibly refreshing to see myself described by Airbnb hosts as thoughtful, considerate, respectful, and awesome. (To be clear, none of these people have ever met me.)
