Chelsey Smith (Swaziland 2013)

Chelsey Smith profileI am Chelsey Smith, and I am passionate about love, literacy, education, and equality. 

Motivated by truth, justice, and an insatiable desire for adventure and challenge – I traveled to Swaziland to volunteer as a Resource Mobilisation Officer with the Swaziland Action Group Against Abuse (SWAGAA) for nine months. I have a Journalism Diploma from Grant MacEwan University, a Communications Degree from Royal Roads University, and an array of professional and volunteer experience with civic engagement, development, and women's empowerment. 

 I am thankful for the support and love of my family and friends. I strive for excellence, always carry lipstick, and have a terrible sense of direction. I wholeheartedly believe that a smile transcends all language barriers. 

The opportunity to work towards the eradication of gender-based violence and abuse with SWAGGA is an honour, and I hope to inspire the hearts and minds of many in Swaziland, as they inspire me.
