From one Kiva Fellow to another

This last week in SF has been a roller-coaster for me. I have been given a wealth of information, but more importantly I met my fellow Kiva Fellows and Kiva Staff. As terrified as I may be at times (like right now!), I know I am not alone. I know I am not the only one facing certain challenges at my MFI or at my country of placement. I know there are 24 awesome people all over the world who for the next 4 months share the title of Kiva Fellow with me.

One of the most interesting moments for me this week is when we received a video made by the prior class of Kiva Fellows (KF15), who are currently out in the field and starting to wrap up their placement. My class, KF 16, received a very warm welcome from KF15with tips and advice as we embark on our journey.  Although the video made by KF 15 is not yet available online, I wanted to share the one that KF12 made for KF13 about a year ago. This gives you an idea of the sense of community at Kiva, and the amazing people who have taken the challenge and opportunity to be a fellow in the past.
