Gloria Nachilima Wurm
My name is Gloria Nachilima Wurm aka gnachie. I was born on a beautiful morning where the sun shone brighter after heavy rains of January in Ndola, Zambia in 1979 ( Kopala babe) . I did my Primary, Junior and Senior Secondary training at Northrise Primary School , Kanini Basic School and Masala Secondary School in Ndola respectively.
Life is a Journey...
I was told to describe myself in this article but that had me going like OMG! as I would rather have someone else describe me . But anyways , am a jovial , passionate person who love having fun. Am a very accommodative person with a big heart for people around me. I have an infectious sense of humour hahahahaha. Did you read that right? oh yeah you read it right! In this case I must brag or praise myself like a ” Lizard which jumped from a high Iroko tree and praised itself when no one else did”- Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart.
I love literature, travel ,dance, meet new people and places , explore different cuisines of different countries but not yet bald enough to try Sushi , maybe it could be the misconception I have of it being “raw” – but am yet to devour it and many other daring delicacies.
In 1998/99 did my College Training in Teavel and Tourism at City College of Management Studies under the United Kingdom Institute of Commercial Management and IATA . I did my internship and later worked for Charlydan Travel and Tours in Lusaka upon completion of my college training.
I worked in different Printing Houses as a Secretary/ Assistant Graphic Designer in Lusaka away from my passion of Tourism but hey I enjoyed because I still had a chance to work with different people and organizations and of course to put some “ money in my pocket / purse.”
