For the past year I have been working as a USAID Field Program Officer in Kandahar, Afghanistan. This experience has been wuite different from my more development focused experiences in Egypt, Jordan and Palestine. In Afghanistan my focus has been stabilization and governance. I truly enjoy governance work and wish to continue along this path, though youth development projects are also a passion of mine.

      This is my first time using this Blog feature and I welcome comments and conversation threads from anyone who may be interested in sharing expereinces and/or opportunities in that aforementioned fields.
