Grace Vottero


Get to know me in three:

My home away from home:
Lisbon, Portugal
The values that influence me:
Empathy, honesty, commitment.
The challenge that shaped me:
From 2016 through 2018, I lived and worked in the same compound in Afghanistan. The experience of living and working side-by-side with my Afghan colleagues, strong, resilient, and proud people, who always sought joy even in the midst of seemingly endless violence, permanently changed almost every perspective I held.
