My name is Malesi and I started this blipfoto account to try and journal a year of my life living in Shrewsbury, England.

I am originally from Zambia where, after completing college, I worked with a NGO working in local schools. I have been given the opportunity to work in England with a Youth charity.

Some interesting things about me: I love reading, playing scrabble and being an auntie to the mischievous  Siyabonga! I have a twin sister in Zambia who will be following my life in England through this blip and hopefully, somehow, that will make up for us being apart.

I am not  very tech savvy and therefore, I have nothing to say about what sort of camera I am using etc!

I hope any one following this blip enjoys it as much as I will enjoy putting down my memories, impressions and thoughts on here.

2018: I've had lots of fun blipping and it's been wonderful to document all my adventures, highs and lows. In the last couple of years, I've had to, unfortunately, step away from a lot of the youth work that first brought me to England. That's been sad and hard for me because it's meant that I've needed to take jobs elsewhere. It hasn't been all bad! I've had the opportunity to work in school with  a year 2 class as part of my L1 teaching assistant's training. That experience was invaluable, mind-opening, annoying and very enjoyable!
