Gaude fancies herself a seeker of truth, love, and light. A tree-hugger at heart, the stars aligned and blessed her with a degree in biology, which she now uses to full effect at her day job as a Communications & Awareness Officer at WWF Tanzania. When not advocating for world peace and the destruction of any and all oppressive forces, Gaude finds the time to indulge in the arts, at times attempting poetry herself. She currently resides in Dar es Salaam, living out the motto "Eat. Slay. Love."
