In early November, we introduced you to one of our Fredskorpset (FK) aka Youth Sport Exchange Program (YSEP) volunteers, Maurice Kamau from Kenya and in this blog post, we’re introducing you to our bubbly volunteer all the way from the snowy land of Norway!
“My name is Ingrid Renli, I am one of the lucky YSEP volunteers, that has traveled from Norway to work with Response Network! I am soon to be 30 years of age, and simply love doing sports and outdoor activities. In Norway I work in the hospital as an Occupational Therapist and volunteer as an Ice-hockey coach for girls and people with disabilities.
I played many sports growing up, among them gymnastics. Though Ice hockey has been my main sport, where I proudly played for the Norwegian National Team for more than 10 years. In the recent years I have focused on kite surfing, skiing and hiking in the mountains. Ice hockey is an amazing sport, but for obvious reasons cannot be played here in southern Africa. So now, I am enjoying my time living and working in the village of Nampongo in Zimba District in Zambia’s southern province, playing netball and football. I enjoy traveling and experience new things, and i’m looking forward to continuing my stay here in Livingstone and Nampongo :)”
