Azikiwe C.

United States

Summary

I am a people person and enjoy connecting with others from culturally diverse backgrounds, and of similar interests. This could look like having coffee with a friend I haven't seen in years, or meeting a new acquaintance for the first time. One of the best ways to engage in meaningful conversation is through in person interaction, it allows for a more open and natural progression of topic discussion. Which allows both parties to learn from one another and share their experiences. I hold a B.A. in International Studies while currently pursuing a M.A. in International Development. I have served in Peace Corps, and have spent the last seven years focusing on international development work, whether through education, personal studies, to living and working abroad in 3 countries combined from Africa to Central and South America. All of these experiences have and continue to shape my approach toward development work. Competence of cross cultural understanding, communication, leadership, facilitation, management, negotiation, training, gender sensitivity, problem solving and analytical skills, have been shaped by my experiences in the field of development.
