The big little chief

January 3, 2016

Alex Jr. is growing up! And, world, be ready. He is already practicing his chief’s dance and has all of the equipment to be sure you show him respect. He is an engaging, confident young boy. It is wonderful to see him thriving. If you look carefully at his expressions you will see that he has a charming, yet serious approach to his future.

I met Alex Jr.’s family the first year I came to Malawi, ten years ago. His father was a nurse on the Male ward, and his mother worked in the Labor ward. Alex became interested in physiotherapy and also became the coordinator for the community health volunteers for the hospital. Their twin girls are growing up too!

Here is a short video of his performance.
