Geeta approached me a couple of months back about blogging in this space. Tiffinbox is and probably will always be a labor of love and as my “online” baby, it was hard to open the front door and just let anyone post here. I was also transitioning Tiffinbox from a Typepad platform to WordPress, so I was able to stall the progression of events. All jokes aside, I exchanged multiple emails with Geeta to get a sense of who she is and what she wanted to say here. I was quickly convinced that Geeta would bring a very different perspective to Tiffinbox.
In her own words:
Geeta is new to blogging – she decided to start officially blogging after she realized the 5-paragraph messages she emailed her friends every day were essentially blog postings. Geeta works in humanitarian assistance and international development in Washington, DC, but has spent the better part of the last 10 years working in England, the Balkans, and Afghanistan. Her most passionate love is writing – you’ll often find Geeta balancing her time between her profession (which she strongly believes in) and her need to write for self-preservation and self-growth. Geeta holds a BA in Creative Writing and a MA in International Peace and Conflict Resolution and is giggly, intensely curious, and enjoys reading Paul Auster and Yusef Komunyakaa. A little more about her is at: www.idropseeds.wordpress.com. She is also the Founder of The Global Sleepover.
Please help me make Geeta welcome and at home here at Tiffinbox. I know her posts are going to instruct, inspire and perhaps even incite you into positive action.
