About

I am a Master’s student of Development Communication who abruptly crossed over from a budding career in biomedical sciences. I’m also a serial intern working in the Public Health sector and loving it! It’s an asymmetrical life…

This blog is an exercise in self accountability, anti-procrastination and the dream of creating a hot spot for Development Communication resources, such as reviews of dominant discourses on issues in the field for beginners and students.

Along the way you’ll also encounter lots of other stuff written by a food addict, recovering procrastinator, avid stalker people-watcher, wannabe ‘local hero’ and borderline narcissist with a high embarrassment threshold.

There are quite a few Development / Corporate / Mass Communication blogs and websites out there and I intend to add links to the best of them as well as regular commentaries on my studies.

Comments welcome!

  1. I love how you worded “this blog is an exercise in self accountability, anti-procrastination” and that’s exactly why I blog… for self accountability.

  2. Hi,
    my name is Nicola, from Italy, and like yourself I really get excited about innovation and startup. That’s why I think your site is outstanding!
    Now, I’d like to talk to you about something that could be of some interest for you and for your blog: Eggup.
    http://www.eggup.net is a FREE business social network that supports the creation of teams by joining people scientifically. The core element is the Eggup Matching Engine which, by analyzing and matching people’ soft skills, creates high – potential teams.
    I would really appreciate if you could spend some time on our platform and see what it is all about: our aim is to give teams a chance to form themselves in a completely innovative way, testing their cohesion degree and having more keys-information in order to reach the goal they are aiming to. I also suggest you to pre-register to Eggup, so that you will be able to follow the project evolution and be part of the change.
    Beta version will be online from the end of April and every team will be able to test its cohesion level.
