Hello and welcome to my abyss of madness.
On this shit hole, you will find some of the latest Child, Adolescent and young people focused news, opportunities and updates in global health. Major themes will be playing hide-and-seek with participation, protection and livelihoods especially in developing countries. Most often, my blog posts will cover humanitarian experiences, road safety and first aid, disaster preparedness, resilience and response, and young people -led research.
Unlike most of my peers, the number one challange I’ve had growing up is access to information! I hope this becomes a museum issue to everyone living in the biggest population on planet earth!-young people.
Well, I hope you find this site interesting, and as hell knows, drop me a tweet or contact me on facebook! Let the madness of connections and information exchange begin! :)
Quickies about me! :P
