Gratitude #2 -United Nations, New York (II) by Mary Ajayi, 2015
First day at the UN and it began to hit me. This is the life we’ve prayed and hoped for, and we didn’t even know it’d come this soon.
In 2013 when Ebenezar Wikina introduced me to UN Volunteers and I began to create awareness about the International Days, one of our wishes was that we’d someday work at the UN. We were in awe of the UN and considered it the greatest platform yet for development work.
2016. And I was talking in a conference hall at the UN. The United Nations.
