My most inspiring moment at ChildFund was seeing a young woman from the program grow from a player to a coach, to a supervisor of many coaches. And then to see her share that experience with others in her community, despite the many challenges she faced.
The things I love most about my job are working with young people from across the region and seeing them grow into role models in their communities.
When I was a child I wanted to do exactly what I am doing now! I had a geography teacher from a very young age who inspired me through his work in Zambia and helped me understand that I was fortunate to be getting a quality education.
The country I’d most like to visit is a difficult one to answer! I like to live in places rather than just visit. But I would love to go back and spend more time in the north of Afghanistan, which I think is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
The top three things I’d take with me in an emergency would be cash, MREs (Meal-Ready-to-Eat ration packs) and clean water. But, if it’s not too much of an emergency, my guitar, chocolate and a comfy pillow.
My favourite dish/cuisine or place to eat is too difficult to choose! Nearly every country I have been to has at least one delicious dish!
I’m really good at eating cheese.
I can’t live without cheese.
I’m looking forward to continuing my work with young people to support them to make a positive change in their communities for many years to come!
