I have worked in international development for nearly 15 years, including field postings to post-conflict and transitional countries such as Libya and Côte d’Ivoire. My experience living and working overseas, especially as a woman, led me to specialize in empowerment projects. One of the best ways to empower others and yourself is to listen to people’s stories, learn from their experiences and your own reaction to their experiences, and accompany each other along the way. I hope that the Mind Field can be a great tool and support for people who are dedicating their time and energy to others. Look for my story soon under “The Mind Field Blog.”
