Our guest speaker: Mariam Ottimofiore
In this practical and insightful workshop, expat author and researcher Mariam Ottimofiore will present her MOLA tool and concept, explaining her ideas about how it can enhance the life of a globally mobile family, helping them navigate their international lives. Mariam will challenge participants to start using the MOLA as a way of thinking about their diverse international experiences, identities, cultures, languages, races, nationalities etc., not just to see who they are, but also to learn how to show to the rest of the world, their often ‘messy’ and overlapping identities.
