Vlada is the pen name of a 24 year old girl who is currently a volunteer teacher in a small school located in Zambia. She loves writing and art. To her true beauty is in the written word and a picture is worth a thousand of them. She can be a little eccentric, wearing floppy shirts and long skirts, and generally looks something like a hippy. Her faith is her life and everything she does is for God. Life may be ugly, but we are here to make it beautiful. It is something she knows is her calling and that is why she writes about it.
