I’m on my way to the gym, but before I head out, I just have to put this video up. I did some narration work for a UNIFEM/UNDP film “The Big Picture: Macroeconomics, Women and HIV/AIDS” in January, and the film has finally been produced and published on youtube. It was really interesting to work on, and the topic couldn’t have been more ideal for a debut project. Apparently, I handled it like a pro (lol), and the entire recording took less time than anticipated. It’s also a testament to the lengths one can go when there’s someone who believes in them (Merci Tata). Anyways, I hope you guys get a sense of why I’m passionate about international development, media and all. Nothing is isolated in the development world. Enjoy, and pass along to others.
