"I can talk with Yolanda – it doesn’t feel like an interview – it’s sharing my experiences, what I could bring and what HIVOS could bring to me. They (OXHR) were very accommodating in terms of time differences as I was in Africa at the time and gave me very clear timelines. I felt we were on the same page in terms of core values”.
