Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap…My journey from sedentary suburban living, to facilitating indigenous inter-cultural immersive experiences on the paradise island of Vorovoro, Fiji.

Join me as I share my story and journey over the last 9 years, which took me from living a suburban life in the US as a wife and mother to moving to Fiji and working directly with the Mali community on Vorovoro Island fostering a greater cross-cultural understanding, creating programs and opportunities of learning for people from all over the world and supporting the Fijian community’s sustainable development goals while retaining the integrity of the local heritage, culture and land. This presentation will provide you with an interactive opportunity to learn what I did and how I turned adversity into opportunity, growing closer to my children and experiencing the benefits and challenges of living a life in a tribal community on a tropical isle.
