Joanna has lived in Harare for over a year now. Her work as a Field Communications Officer for MSF has taken her to different parts of Zimbabwe, where she spent a substantial amount of time in Bulawayo and Beitbridge.
Her daily life and the work with MSF in Zimbabwe – ranging from HIV programs to emergency response – has instilled in her a deep appreciation for the country, its culture, and people. Previously she has worked as a free-lance journalist, writing from various countries like Ethiopia and Sri Lanka, and was a radio presenter in Athens.
The 39-year old is of Greek-American heritage, used to be part of the Greek National Modern Pentathlon team, loves to explore and discover new worlds, and to share her experiences with others.
