Why I am a humble bee?

I believe in networking, in fact, I am convinced that the most efficient way of working in international development and conflict resolution is through collaborative work. That is why I have been actively involved in various experiences of professional networking, with great results. I am sure that being part of this network will be a wonderful opportunity to share knowledge and experiences with talented co-workers from different parts of the globe, but with similar approaches to the basics. I think the network can foster my personal and professional profile by bringing in new perspectives, sharing what is going on in our grassroots experiences and by using new methodologies and technical and theoretical tools as crosscutting.
