Working in Malawi Africa

Since I was very little, I have always wanted to travel to Africa. After doing undergraduate and graduate studies, however, a trip there was outside of my reach for quite a while. Working as a staff member doing health promotions at UBC, gave me the opportunity to work in Africa as part of the Leave for Change program. I worked for three weeks in Blantyre, Malawi, helping a non profit organization develop a strategic plan, and as a result, I traveled solo for the first time internationally.
