Rowina Koh went to Namibia for her 7-month assignment as a librarian at the Southern African Development Community Parliamentary Forum*. With MA in Library Sciences earned in UBC, Rowina contributed to establish the basic structure of a library. Her dream is to build up libraries around the world in order to give people opportunities to read and learn. She talks about an interesting story about a "hidden library" found during her assignment. Rowena has returned to Vancouver.

*this is an intergovernmental organization which represents all parliamentarians of 14 countries in the Southern Africa.
