"I still remember being asked in my interview for UWC, on my experience of ‘peace education’. I attempted to blabber out some sort of answer, but truth be known, the experience I had was very limited. Little did I realise, until I started this role, the centrality of this question to the UWC mission and how this concept would have a huge impact on me. I am so proud to be associated with the peace work we do at the College. To say that UWC has broadened my horizon is an understatement."
