28 February 2019 | Stockholm, Sweden [Siri Bjerkan Karlsson]
“Siri, you should be working in development.” It was my uncle speaking. Odd Jordal started ADRA in Scandinavia and I was working as his secretary for one year, taking an extended gap between finishing school and starting university. I had just returned from two years working as a volunteer in Ghana, West Africa. I was 22 years old, about to get married and not very sure about the future.
