By Pauline Njoroge
In the last week of September 2020, I started drafting my resignation letter. It’s the hardest thing I have had to write in a very long time. Those few paragraphs took me about 5 days to compile….
The thought of leaving a secretariat where I have worked for a good 7 years, where I know everyone and understand every other process was terrifying. This is a place I started off as a casual but rose over time to be where I am today. I have grown in my career, gotten so much exposure professionally as well as many opportunities to experience Africa and the world. During that period I got to interact with the best minds in the continent from Heads of State and Government, to our most outstanding diplomats and intellectuals. For this I am very grateful! It has been a life changing experience.
But a girl must keep aiming higher, a girl must keep growing and never lose her ambition. As this months comes to a close and my transition draws closer, I am grateful for the seven-year journey and I appreciate all the opportunities I got to grow and learn.
I am now looking forward the new assignment ahead; a new challenge, a new land to conquer. Scared of leaving my comfort zone and starting off in a new territory? Yes! Quite emotional about this transition? Very much. But above all, I am excited and grateful because 7 years ago, where I am going was a just a dream that seemed quite unrealistic…… but now it is a reality.
This is good. Sure, there’s the feeling of attachment and gratitude… But you have to move upwards, far up, where you’re needed. You’re very capable and will handle everything that comes your way, because you know your destiny.
I wish you courage, success and many, many blessings
