In the ostensibly short time since moving to Senegal, time has flown. Even more surprising is the amount I have learned, both on the personal and professional levels.

I have had plenty of time to adapt to a new culture, get a sense of the environment in which I am now getting more and more involved in, acculturate to the diversity of my colleagues, as an intern in the NGO sector, and people in my surroundings, and gain an ease to my independence. I have started to fulfill the professional goals I had charted at the beginning of my journey.

In the spirit of becoming an International Project Manager for initiatives involving Youth, Media and ICTs in ‘developing countries’, I have made contacts, acquired more knowledge and put into practice what I learnt in my Masters course (M.A. Anthropology of Development, Goldsmiths' College, London UK)

The accomplishments to date are highlighted as wanting and willing to be able to learn, put in practice, improve and facilitate my knowledge of the institutional side of ‘development’ within which I would be able to better at reaching my objectives as well as contributing to the research and training of sustainable projects resulting in the progress of the lives of those living there. Part of my mission is being involved and dedicated to helping and empowering people through education and knowledge sharing, promoting secure steps at sustaining communities, and assisting in the global fight to eradicating poverty, injustice and inequality, and I am on my way!
