Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am a native of Sudan, currently living in the United States. I am a PhD candidate in Ohio University. My research interest includes the role of social institutions on peace building and conflict transformation, in Sudan in particular, and societies emerging from conflict in general. I just spent last year (2008) in Sudan and Kenya interviewing Sudanese and Sudanese refugees in Kenya about their use of radio as a tool for peace building.

My Passions:
peace, Africa, God

My Challenges:

My Vision for the Future:
be a peace educator and live in harmony with my self and others

My Areas of Expertise:
Social science, peace and conflict, women in war and conflict zones
