Scarlett Hawkins is a gender-based violence specialist and storyteller from Melbourne, Australia. Scarlett has worked for both the International Organization for Migration, the UN Migration Agency, and the United Nations Population Fund in Vanuatu; and previously worked on gender issues for several non-governmental organizations across Europe. Scarlett is currently a Rotary Peace Fellow at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

In this episode, Scarlett discusses her experiences living and working in Vanuatu on programs to address gender-based violence… the importance and benefits of bringing our whole self to work… opportunities and challenges associated with relocating or living in a new place… the importance of reflecting on the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves… defining risk-taking as “going for the greater story”… facing the question “Am I enough?”… attention deficit hyperactivity disorder… forgiving other people and forgiving ourselves.  (Australia)
