Academic Advisor, Jesuit Worldwide Learning
Gerawork Gizaw successfully completed Princeton University’s Global History Lab and History Dialogue Project, learning to use historical research methods, oral history, and storytelling. He coauthored “Hope Disrupted: Refugees in Limbo” together with Dr Staci Martin, based on the Psychosocial Peace Building training she conducted in the camp. Currently, he is working as an academic advisor under a Jesuit Worldwide Learning (JWL) tertiary-level education program that offers associate and bachelor’s degree programs in collaboration with South New Hampshire University. Above all, he has lived in Kakuma refugee camp for ten years teaching at secondary and postsecondary level and interacting with a diverse community, which has made him wonder about human nature, hope, and different forms of establishments. Consequently, wondering, contemplating, reading, and nowadays listening to YouTube talks have become his hobbies.
