I am a child and maternal health researcher based in the Dhaka children's hospital (Dhaka Shishu), working with icddrb on a Bill and Melinda Gates Funded project in the Subcontinent. (ANISA)
Originally from Toronto, Canada and of Irish/Scottish Descent. I have been doing this type of international health work for almost 5 years now and am respectful, but also have some stories as you might imagine. I am a landlord myself here in Dhaka for 2 large all-inclusive apartments with servants, etc. So I understand about the anxiety of a new tenant prospect.
My job is pretty demanding but I feel pretty balanced happy to have a beer and discuss politics, art, history, ethics, and culture generally, I like ideas.
Maybe that's why I'm drawn to this airbnb thing.
