Notes from the field:  (continued)  Introducing our team in Mentao Refugee Camp:  This is Bajeck one of two artist assistants who I am working with and training in arts techniques and community public arts.  I asked him to write a short introduction and here it is! – Christina

My name is Bajeck and I am 23 years old.  I received my Diploma of Fundamental Study after completing junior high school and studied at a school of nursing in Gao in a two-year program.  I completed the program and worked as a nurse in Gao.  I also have experience in the culture and art of the Touareg. I now find myself a part of the refugee community in Burkina Faso and work for Christina Mallie at Colors of Connection in a project that I very much appreciate.
