I have worked and lived in East Africa and the Middle East for the past 5 years, mainly focusing on gender issues. After a few intense years working in emergencies, I recently moved to London but I still travel regularly to places with no water and plenty of land cruisers.
I am currently living with my girlfriend Elisabeth and I am slowly re-learning to enjoy the comforts of a big city. Mainly brunches and theatre plays. And, of course, gay bookstores.

I left my country 14 years ago. One of the things I like the most about living in a foreign country is how other cultures have challenged my beliefs and underlined assumptions. Un-learning is a painful but rewarding process.
As an aid worker, I believe in what we do but not necessarily in how we do it. I take inspirations from other people’s resilience. I look forward to the day when nobody will give a monkey’s about other people’s sexual orientation and love will not be criminalised anywhere in the world.
I only have one secret.

I am new to foreign aid work and am just over a year into my first project in rural Oaxaca. In my spare time I like to challenge gender stereotypes and ask a lot of questions. My focuses include environmental education and climate change adaptations, and of course, feminism.
