It is time to step out of my comfort zone and serve humanity in the world stage. This notion has been disconcerting me since I obtained my MA in International Development at Flinders University, South Australia in 2014. I‘ve worked with CARE International -a reputable international humanitarian organisation, and government departments in my home country, where I ‘ve build up specific experience in humanitarian aid, governance and service delivery, and education. I am optimistic that my dream of assisting in international disaster management, and deployment in conflict zones as a peacekeeper will be realised soon. After completing my fellowship, I am keen to work with UN and Rotary International peace keeping or any global disaster management spaces where I can contribute significantly. In the local front, I hope to assist marginalised youths to take a positive perspective at life and also to engage in leadership building with local primary schools.
