Bio: Though an American now living in Fiji, your correspondent has lived in other places before. I was a tyke in Blantyre, Malawi for my first two years, before my folks moved stateside to Bellingham, Washington for nearly seven years. I moved to Moshi, Tanzania (at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro) a month after 9/11, and lived there until I graduated from the International School of Moshi in 2010. I moved stateside to spend my freshman Hiram College in tiny Hiram, Ohio, before I wisely transferred across the Midwestern cornfields to Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. At Knox I studied International Relations, Journalism and Spanish, completing an Honors project on Chinese-African relations (focusing on Tanzania and Zambia as case studies) in May 2014. I moved to Fiji on September 4, 2014, to serve as a Community Health Empowerment Volunteer for Peace Corps, hoping to get involved in grassroots development work as well as gender and sexual education work.
