It’s a strange feeling. Me, the new Executive Director of Legacies. This is my dream role. The opportunity to give back to a country that is beloved by so many generations of my family. What an immense honor and grand responsibility.
When Channapha first shared her intentions of stepping back, my initial reaction was worry. A worry for our mission’s future. Who will carry our work forward? Who is worthy and cares enough? Will they do justice for our mission?
Our mission is so near and dear to my heart, our work so important, that I wasn’t sure if I would be able to live up to what was needed to continue and finish the mission.
In the end, my love overcame my fear and here I am.
I'm Sera and I hope this blog spreads awareness of Laos' fight against unexploded ordnance and the plight of survivors. It also helps me share my family's story and allows me to take action and #lightnewlegacies.
