Working with EPI in Eswatini – Part 1 Community Dialogue

First,  I wish you a happy new year. 2019 started for me in Eswatini with some of my family who visited me, it was awesome  🙂 Months after the first blog, and before going back to GSK Belgium, I’m sharing some memorable experiences. All this time, I’ve enjoyed every moment working with EPI (Expanded Programme on Immunization), CHAI, WHO, […]

Part 5: Final Stretch…the verdict!

This is my last straight before my return to GSK land! But before that I will leave from 7th to January 13th in Benin in Cotonou to test the training material that I developed! I am both, impatient and anxious about the result ! C’est ma dernière ligne droite avant mon retour chez GSK land, ! […]

Where Do We Begin?

I’ve been busy at my PULSE assignment, focusing on STEM education initiatives in Philadelphia, and it’s going great! I’ve learned a lot, taking part in as many workshops, meetings, and volunteering projects as I can; helping educators through professional development workshops; leading our initiative to recruit, train, and schedule STEM Speakers to present to students […]

The power of sharing

My second month in Tanzania seems to have flown by, mostly due to the fact I have been travelling for the last 2 weeks. The first trip was to Zanzibar, to meet up with 2 fellow PULSE volunteers, Adrianne and Adrianna both who are based in Nairobi, Kenya. Being the only PULSE volunteer in Dar, […]

Coming full circle

The first time I thought about applying for PULSE was the day that Andrew Witty announced the program. At the time, I thought that it was for higher level employees — certainly such a wonderful program would not be available to the rank and file GSK employee. It wasn’t until a few years later, when a Philly colleague took […]

The Courage to Become…

Be a good girl. Smile. Don’t cry when you skin your knee. Share your toys. Go to school. Get good grades. Make plenty of friends. Stand up straight, the ugliest thing in the world is a tall girl who slouches. Be young, thin, and the socially accepted version of pretty – oh, and do that FOREVER. […]

Making a change

  I have now been in Tanzania for 1 month! In some ways I feel like I’ve lived here for a long time, but on the other hand, time is flying! The NGO that I am working for, Amref Health Africa, is an Africa led organization present in 9 African countries. I am working in […]

LOS RETOS SON REGALOS

Con un lenguaje mucho más coloquial que en inglés… voy a empezar con la versión española-mexicana! And the English version in blue! Maybe it’s not a literal translation… but I´ll do my best! (See below) Con la idea en mente de cómo empezar el blog y qué cosas y sensaciones compartir con vosotros, ya ha […]

First impressions

Karibu! So luckily the two infamous suitcases did close and my flight to Dar Es Salaam was gloriously uneventful. I’ve been to some pretty chaotic airports before (Delhi and La Paz come to mind) but nothing could prepare me for Dar Es Salaam airport. I managed to get my way through immigration and to baggage […]
