Marketing Assistant Maria Zuppardi shares what the shift to working from home has meant for her (and her new co-worker!) and how Mawenzi House continues to bring creativity forward in these difficult times:
"My workday has changed drastically since working from home. Like many of you, I’m sure we suddenly find ourselves with new, unpaid coworkers—who might not be too happy about that! Juggling work with an overly hyper 7-month-old puppy, Charlie, is my biggest hurdle during the day. Zoom meetings and puppies just don’t go well together (I apologize to the authors who had to deal with loud barking during said meetings)."
