One aspect of life that I supremely dislike is having to say goodbye to friends too quickly. I guess I will have to get used to it though, because the career path I have chosen involves a lot of that - at least, among the fellow expatriates in the international development world! I am so thankful for the many people I have met and gotten to know on placement this year, and am excited to have now met a few new volunteers that are here for this next term.
I had the pleasure of introducing them to a Lilongwe weekend recently, and we had a lot of fun together. Lara is from Seattle and is working with me at JRS, Yanara is a German transplant to Ontario here through WUSC (like me!) and is living at my house with me, and Sasha is another WUSC volunteer from British Columbia, and is living and working with AYISE in Blantyre (same organization as Anna, my fellow Malawi INDEVOUR).
Welcome! My name is Katiana and I am a development professional pursuing my dream to live out Isaiah 1:17 to the best of my abilities. I am passionate about teaching and working with vulnerable families and children to improve their lives sustainably.
