I started out at the grassroots in Malawi, mobilizing, training communities, especially young people and women, to exercise voice and agency in politics and public policy and campaigning against violence against women and girls through roles at Plan International, UN Women and Konrad Adenauer Foundation.  I also worked with the EU as a political analyst during the 2014 tripartite elections.

I moved on to global roles, first with the Commonwealth Secretariat in London, where I provided technical advisory to 54 member states of the Commonwealth on youth and gender policies. I was special aide to the Commonwealth Deputy Secretary General and the Director of the Youth Division on several diplomatic engagements including with high commissioners in London, with heads of government and ministerial meetings.

I joined the World Bank in Washington D.C. through the Young Professionals Program. At the Bank, I lead social sustainability and inclusion, have worked with clients in Europe and Central Asia and East Africa regions, including a field assignment based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I have experience in a broad range of sectors including health, education, water, energy, social protection, transport, agriculture, disaster risk management as well as financial services.

I enjoy navigating the world of work. I use this blog to reflect on my personal experiences and the many things I am (un)learning.
