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…

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…
