Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
My name is Juana and I am a social worker from Brisbane, Australia; I work in the area of domestic violence and sexual assautl with women from non-English speaking backgrounds. I have also worked in the area of labour rights for women and young people.
I was born in Papua New Guinea and came to Brisbane when I was 3 years old. I am currently completing my Masters in Social Work at the University of Queensland. Besides working in Brisbane, I have also volunteered in Colombia and Kenya in the area of gender based violence and HIV/AIDS.

Hello there. Just a random passer-byer welcoming you.
You work sounds fulfilling. Good look with the Masters.

Sorry about the late response; I have been busy organizing my move overseas. I am off to Mongolia to work for the next year. I will be working at the National Centre against Violence, the national domestic violence and sexual assault service based in Ulaanbaatar. A very belated thank you for the welcoming comment.
The Masters is going well, I will be completing my last semester while working in Mongolia. I look forward to the end of the year once the Masters is over and I am settled in Mongolia.
I will be using Pulse Wire more regularly while I am in Mongolia as it is always good to connect with like minded people throughout the world.
