If I could earn a living doing what I love the most, I would work as a global missionary sans the faith based portion.

I was born in Zimbabwe raised in an African Apostolic church and a society which views community in a holistic facet. Due to this nature I grew up with a natural tendency of wanting to take care of and help people. Since the time I was a very small girl I would watch members (missionaries) of the church leave to go on what they called missions. I told myself that I too one day can go on these missions to help people. My number one passion is helping others, whether it comes in the form of health, justice, love, or peace of mind I aim to please. When I graduate Howard University I am joining the Peace Corps for 2 years to begin making my dream a reality. Traveling the world into the places that people fear or have pure distaste for and taking unconditional compassion wherever needed. Of course understanding that one person cannot change the world, I also know it only takes one person to make a difference. By simply touching the life of one person the journey of networking and life change begins and before one knows it humanity can find social justice, health, liberation, peace etc.
