THIS SHOW IS AN ELLY AND NORA CREATIVE PROJECT
What are the common threads that tie us all together? Today’s guest, Olivia Mulerwa, is here to untangle those threads for us to see! Olivia brings years of experience in transitional justice, human rights, and international education to the Mission ONE team. Equipped with two master’s degrees in law and international business, Olivia has worked for the Ministry of Justice of Rwanda where she authored Rwanda’s first National Human Rights Policy and worked closely with the UN. Combining her extensive experience in international relationships and education, Olivia brings a fresh perspective and cultural intelligence to her role at Mission ONE. She leads M1’s Project Team with enthusiasm and builds avenues for cross-cultural learning as they work together with their international partners.
As the interim president of Mission ONE, Olivia has valuable wisdom to share about identity, purpose, authenticity of the self, and much more. How do we define and redefine our identities? How can we learn to listen to our intuition? What can we do to show up authentically on online spaces? By the end of the episode, you’ll be walking away with a new understanding of what your true self really means!
