What else...?

Ever since I had been to the USA as a 17 year old exchange student with Youth for Understanding I have always gotten to know other cultures at a deeper level. In total I spent eight years abroad and have been working internationally for 14 years. My role models are my former Malawian and Burundian colleagues whom I owe until today - they have modeled conflict transformation for me over and over again in every day life, and they have inspired me until today. I wish to give back and pass on the hospitality of my hosts and openness of my international partners.
