I’m here to serve. I put every last child first despite hard times.

Abyei, South Sudan - There is an excitement around “firsts” that to me, borders on hysteria. Parents in particular wait, watch and use all kinds of technology to capture their child’s “firsts” – their baby’s first word, first smile, first steps, first day in school….

Most firsts relate to something positive, but are they all? Sometimes, it can be our first fall that helps us to learn - which bring me to a recent experience as part of my work with Save the Children in South Sudan.
