First day of becoming an OXFAMily

Day 3

My first day working at Oxfam, I got up at 7:30 and took a shower. Of course some breakfast …EXCITED


I walked to work feeling awesome…

Oxfam occupies the entire top floor of the building… it is huge… In Marco’s  ( dale ride intern of 2016) picture, it looked really bad… Come on Marco! You can do better…

In reality Oxfam is speechlessly huge… Yeah, I am from LA, we do stuff in flat houses.. OK?

This is the front desk…


I really wanted to take lots of pictures but I held back… I don’t want to look unprofessional… So I took a lot of pictures the next day….

JoJo- our front desk nice girl gave us a tour…

We have 3 of these corner rooms for meeting and chilling… Two of them are called Mahatma Gandhi Room and Nelson Mandela Room

Our Kitchen.. The best thing: I am sitting next to it….


We had our Skype orientation with our HR from Boston Headquarter. Lunch is provided…We had our lunch together.. remotely.. Oxfam impressed me for being a well-organized organization.

After Orientation, I met with my advisor/ Manager/ Boss, she is a Muslim. and she is super cool. She is down to the earth, she is wise and understanding. Trust builds quickly.
Well… This is my first day of work. I really enjoyed it… The task I am taking on is very challenging and interesting…
