Welcome back to my blog! It’s been some time since I last wrote here. Life took an unexpected turn with the arrival of Covid, prompting me to explore new avenues and embrace change.
Before the pandemic, my career revolved around assisting humanitarian organizations with communication needs. From photography to website design, I was deeply involved in making a difference. However, when Covid struck, the world paused, and so did my work. This unexpected break pushed me to rethink my path.
I seized the opportunity to enroll in a Master’s program in Strategic Communication in 2020. Surprisingly, I discovered a newfound passion for learning and excelled in the program. The structured environment of graduate school and academic writing appealed to me, igniting my interest in making knowledge accessible and breaking down barriers that hinder the spread of ideas that can better our world.
As 2022 drew to a close, I embarked on yet another adventure, accepting a position at an international NGO dedicated to ending human trafficking and modern slavery. After years of working independently, I found joy in collaborating with colleagues from around the globe.
Now, in 2023, I am thrilled to share that I have an exciting opportunity ahead – pursuing a Ph.D. in Peacebuilding at Payap University in Chiang Mai, Thailand. As I dive into this new chapter, I am resurrecting this blog as a platform to process my learnings and foster the exchange of knowledge and ideas that can create positive change.
I invite you to join me on this journey of growth, collaboration, and making the world a better place. Let’s embrace change together and pave the way for a brighter future.
