Volunteering with the United Nations has taught a Kenyan lawyer the value of interacting with people from around the world: something that she says "opens your mind" and allows you to grow both personally and professionally.

Ann Kamunya is currently serving with the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, in Turkey, where she interviews asylum-seekers.

Ann trained as a lawyer and is an advocate for Kenya's high court, but has had a passion for volunteering since her university days.

Maoqi Li spoke with the UN Volunteer (UNV) at a recent forum in Antalya looking at how countries in the southern hemisphere can support each other.
