Best thing about Pearson College UWC according to me

The trees, the water, the birds, and the children both young and young at heart.

Must-have item for life at Pearson

I can’t think of a physical item, but there are many untouchable must haves, including a sense of humour and a smile to balance the serious times and tears.

Favourite place

Rosen Lake, a cold and crystal clear mountain lake in the heart of in the Rocky Mountains. This was my childhood sanctuary.

Interesting fact

In 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the very same time as celebrating the opening ceremony of Atsikana Pa Ulendo, Malawi Girls On the Move Secondary School, a school I cofounded with my friend Memory.
