I have always been interested in working abroad. To my delight I have found several exciting opportunities in Portugal.
In my early 30s I worked overseas with UNICEF – MALAWI. A small country in East Africa.This was before Madonna made it infamous through her baby adoption.My decision to work overseas was a BIG MOVE. I quit my job, left a relationship, and said goodbye to family and friends.It was an amazing 2 years! Full of adventure.
My experience overseas involved working with rural communities to promote the country’s National Health Program on maternal and child well-being; including immunization.2 Beautiful sweet girls (photo credit)
