Nadine Hiemstra

Nadine Hiemstra is a recent graduate of the Peace and Conflict Studies program at the University of Waterloo. The pursuit of justice, peace and community has led her to the small, rural town of Hostotipaquillo in Mexico, where she is volunteering with a Catholic Worker´s movement house called Casa Colibri (or House of the Hummingbird). Everyday activities involve organic farming, running children´s programs, making language blunders in Spanish, observing the effects of poverty, and discovering what community is all about.
