Since I moved home from Mexico I started working at @clinique , and while I love the job the culture shock is crazy.
This room was my office for the last three years, and those Birkenstock’s were my uniform. I rented a house (basically just a room with a bathroom) in what used to be a bakery in the village so that my team and I could stay over if we needed to. Yaxhachén was about 2 1/2 hours south of Mérida, the city where we all lived. This picture is from the very beginning of the project, when I was working with @laloareca on the act of the co-op. We decided that it would be in the best interest of the community to help the artisans form an independent co-operative which could act as a source of employment for its members, and this was one of our first meetings in the house which later became home to @cooperativaflordemargarita 🌼💕
Life is an adventure! Thankful to spend time with my amazing friend @lizjsimpson and her family. Thank you for making me feel at home and showing me around San Antonio.
When your travel plans change...make the best of it because there is always a reason. ❤️ Thank you to @AmericanAirlines for working so hard the past few days to get me home safely ✈️
Many nations in Africa have an immense amount of natural resources to transform their economies however many of these nations are seeing slow economic development or great economic development but unequal distribution of wealth amongst the masses leaving many living in poverty, which leaves room for argument that although Africa is blessed with abundant mineral wealth, it can also be considered a curse due to the constant struggle and battle over her rich soil. Let's take an example of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a nation who's mineral wealth is estimated to be in the trillions, Arguably the richest country on the planet in terms of mineral wealth and natural resources however economic development has been slow, civil war has ravaged the nation, corrupt government and constant looting from exterior countries has left the nation in a constant state of instability. Now if Africa is to really see her true potential the continent itself needs to realise that this "resource curse" is just a term used by the west as they can clearly see that thier is no curse when they are investing billions annually (China) and keeping a strong hold on the nation which they have been since pulling the false card of declaring independence to the nations within the continent. Africa is on the rise, Africa is the world's second fastest-growing region, many of the fastest growing economies in the world are in Africa therefore the term curse is the wrong word, certain factors are blocking Africa's development.... However things are about to change.
