I count myself very lucky to be able to make a living doing work that is in alignment with my values and the things that I believe in.
Work does not necessarily have to be something that is separate from your values, from your passions and from your interests – something that fills the work day and pays the bills, and what you really want to do happens on the weekend and evenings.
Working in the international development sector can be the best job in the world. Really. I cannot imagine anything else being as interesting, challenging and rewarding as some of the jobs I have had.
