    "Hey Bron, fantastic to hear you are immersing yourself in the experience and looking forward to getting stuck in to work. We miss you over here but I am so thrilled you are embarking on this wonderful giving adventure that is at the core of who you are. Gosh your descriptions reminded me of my two visits to Vanuatu - such a capitivating place with warm and generous people.... and the dresses! Stunning :) I do think we deserve a photo of you in yours for posting on PharmHUB!!!" - Jenny L
