On Friday the 8th of March, Ms Heitkonig and I had the privilege of attending the Timaru Zonta Club Celebration of International Women's Day.
The guest speaker, Mrs Youngs, talked about living and working in Afghanistan over the past 25 years. Her stories of life in a country we know little about, apart from what we hear in the news, were fascinating. This was an amazing opportunity to get a better understanding of life in a country affected by conflict and learn about the difference aid agencies and individuals can make. I also feel very lucky to live in a safe country where we have so many opportunities.
Mrs Youngs will be speaking at our Student Led Assembly on Tuesday the 3rd of April.
