I’m really excited about Tiese sharing a day in her life with us! Before we go on and just in case you’re wondering how to pronounce her name (as she says many people do!), it’s pronounced /tee-eh-seh/ and is short for Etieseabasi, which means sit down and look up to God. On social media Tiese is a travel blogger and lover! You will also often catch her dancing to her favorite Latin-American songs on her Instagram stories.
But behind this 25 year old travel loving, expressive dancer and spicy food (Nigerian and Thai cuisine) enthusiast, with an irrational fear of birds, is a career lady whose day job involves an important world objective - eliminating malaria in Asia / Southern Africa. At first, I thought to myself that I wouldn’t possibly have imagined her in that role - but it’s interesting to see how she’s ended up there and what she thinks of it all.
From her morning routine, misconceptions about her jobs to career advice and curiosities - she shares it all in this feature!
