December 11th 2019 - Angela Martyn

We were fortunate to hear some very interesting experiences of living in New York and Behrain from of our Outlings Cooridnator, Angela Martyn. We heard of stories of accepting packages and then having to get them up 5 flights of stairs and how she was nearly traded as a potential bride. Angela had us spellbound for the entire session and made us all aware of "afternoon tea with benefits!"
