Change is inevitable

by lifeinsouthsudan

Fredskorpset is celebrating their 50th anniversary with an exhibition in central Oslo. A friend of mine sent me this picture with some words that look very familiar. They are from a text I wrote in Norwegian that can be found  here.Fredskorpset 50th Anniversary Exhibition

“Change is inevitable.

By moving a person from one country to another and into a new culture, you push her out of her comfort zone and right into someone else’s.

That’s when different types of mutual exchange happen.

That’s when change happens.”

I’ll let these words end my exchange year at the National Bureau of Statistics. But my time in South Sudan is not yet over. There are more stories to come.
