In 2014, I volunteered on the Community Development project in Jamaica after just having graduated from a degree in Anthropology of International Development. During my time volunteering I participated in research, helped with workshops, trainings, events and worked at literacy centres helping young people learn basic literacy. This experience was great for learning about Jamaica and how social development works in reality.Fast forward to 2016 and I now am a consultant for the World Bank in Jamaica, through the connections and experience I gained through volunteering.
