A lot has happened since my last post… July ended, August whizzed by and now September is in its waning crescent. Wow!

My greatest comfort being 4,765 km away from home has been finding acceptance and forging strong ties within my host family with which I now have, the instruments to execute smooth gear changes in the course of my assignment.

Fueled by compassion and sacrifice, my assignment is clearly on its sixth gear cruising along the uncharted path to its prized destination. I have since learnt to adjust my throttle and ride height to effectively engage with my stakeholders at all levels, tuned my suspension to handle the occasional ruts and filled up my window washer reservoir with Bug Juice remover to maintain a clear view of critical signs and hazards.

Enabled by strong family ties, my new relationships and experiences at Leonard Cheshire have been immensely life changing. I have delightfully discovered hidden talents, broadened my knowledge, gained valuable skills and appreciation for the work done by the development sector.

I am happy to be an agent of positive change in my community, life and workplace.

Be the change.
