My name is Chinyanta Chimba J.  I am 20 years old and a member of the Students Partnership Worldwide Ex-Volunteers Network (EVN) in Zambia.  I live in Lusaka, Zambia. Zambia is situated in the southern central part of Africa and Lusaka is the capital city.

I will be going to the UK as the SPW International Advocacy Intern and am hoping to greatly contribute to international development efforts as well as from an SPW Advocacy aspect.

Researching and reading more about Advocacy work has been the most essential part of my preparation for the trip.  But I have also been preparing my mind for the new challenges about my work and the new environment.

Going away from home always brings to mind a lot of expectations.  I anticipate successes and challenges in my line of work.  I am also excited and very expectant on the wealth of knowledge and experiences I am going to achieve as a young person working together with (SPW) London.

I believe my new experiences are going to go far beyond the borders of myself and my nation. I expect to learn a new culture, to be able to fit in and I will not want to forget the new skills that will enable me to maintain a life full of self esteem and dignity.

Finally, I count myself blessed because I have an opportunity that everybody doesn’t have and I wish to share my experiences with those that have the same opportunities as myself and those that do not have, so that we share a common goal.
