Profile

I started out at the grassroots in Malawi, mobilizing, training and supporting communities, especially young people and women,  to exercise voice and agency in politics and policy processes through roles at Plan International and Konrad Adenauer Foundation  I also worked with the EU, supporting analytical work on the 2014 elections in Malawi. My last position in Malawi was with UN Women where I worked on a program to end violence against women and girls.

I moved on to the Commonwealth Secretariat in London, where I provided technical advisory to member states of the Commonwealth on youth and gender policies. I was special aide to the Commonwealth Deputy Secretary General on several bi-lateral engagements in southern Africa and with High Commissioners in London; as well as special aide to the Conference Secretary for the 9th Commonwealth Youth Ministers Meeting.

I joined the World Bank in Washington D.C. through the Young Professionals Program. At the Bank,  I work on social sustainability and inclusion. I have worked in many countries across East Africa, Europe and Central Asia regions, including a field assignment in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

I enjoy navigating the world of work. I use this blog to reflect on my personal growth, to highlight what I am un(learning) and share some of my experiences.
