My visit to the University of Warwick - A game changer in my studies

By Tumaini Malenga Chiseko, Cohort 4 fellow

Tumaini Malenga
Most sincere thanks to CARTA for the support during my six weeks stay at the University of Warwick, under the supervision of Prof. Frances Griffiths. I am a cohort 4 CARTA fellow pursuing my studies at the University of Malawi's College of Medicine. My research is embedded in the Majete Malaria Project (MMP). MMP is a collaboration of African Parks with Wageningen University, Amsterdam Medical Centre and University of Malawi’s College of Medicine, to set up a community-driven malaria prevention intervention study in a low-income community surrounding a wildlife reserve. I will be assessing the social implications of the intervention with regards to health behaviour and changes in socio-economic indicators.

My time at Warwick was an incredibly fruitful experience in terms of getting me to think more critically about the approach to my research question, as well as polish up on my writing. I was very well supported at the medical school and had all the resources of a Warwick student at my disposal. I had access to the library, and online journals to perform my searches. I also had access to the student working space where I was able to interact with other Warwick doctoral students, some were fellow Africans. 

While at Warwick, I was given the opportunity to present my work at a seminar. I had the opportunity to have my work discussed and I responded to questions that needed my attention whereas I took note of what I needed to work on later.  This helped me improve on expressing my ideas. There were opportunities to participate in other seminars organized by the department. I was lucky to attend a seminar with a very similar topic to mine something that gave me an opportunity to update myself on the current literature on behaviour change communication as it relates to health, as well as other literature on influences of changes in health behaviour.

Prof. Frances Griffiths
Whilst there, Prof. Griffiths and I met four times a week for five weeks and talked through my systematic literature review. She took time out of an incredibly busy schedule to support me in a manner that I felt confident in the work I was doing. The walk back to the library after each meeting was my way of reflection. There were days I would burn out mentally but was always comforted after a meeting as I felt I had made some progress. 

I learnt something new every day. It was a learning curve for us both as we tried to create a piece that brought something new to the arguments and seeing where the old thoughts were exhausted and the new gaps emerged. I did second guess myself quite a lot and I must commend Frances for helping me believe that the answer was somewhere in my mind, I just had to trust that I can bring it all together.

Coincidentally I met with Prof. Donald Cole, also affiliated with CARTA, who has very kindly agreed to co-author my paper. He offered support on his visit to Warwick and has helped shape structure the paper and my line of argument. Also useful were the one to one sessions, lasting well over an hour, with the librarian Samantha Johnson. Sam helped me understand how to run searches for articles for a review and searching for literature in general. I also met Dr Gillian Hundt who very kindly spent time with me helping me think about prospects for the future and options I would have as a young researcher in Africa.

This visit gave me an opportunity to access quite a number of useful resources that I do not have access to in Malawi. After the six weeks being at Warwick, I had the opportunity to put my paper in good shape. I am hopeful that my work will soon turn into my very first publication which I would be very proud to share. I urge other CARTA fellows to take advantage of such opportunities availed by CARTA.  

Special thanks to the CARTA program for availing me this opportunity that has been an eye opener for me. I can testify that this visit has positively impacted on my research and I am confident that I will excel in remaining areas of my fellowship. I also thank Prof. Frances Griffiths and Donald Cole for helping me work through my systematic review. Gillian Hundt and Margaret Thorogood for mentoring and advice given before and during my stay at the University. Gaynor and Barbara with logistics of helping me settle in, and Samantha for helping me with the journal article searches.

  4. This comment I Linda Phyliss is placing is not like the day by day advert you read online before!! Its a comment that you must read to avoid been ripped off and know the real spell caster on earth God sent to change and turn lives around without any harm / side effect.
    I am so over joyful as my month can not start to say all that really happened, It happened when i saw DR OTIS DARKO advert online talking about been the best when there are so many spell casters online that i have used that has failed me.I spent almost close to $8000 dollars online for those spell casters that ripped me off my money without any result. But when i saw DR OTIS DARKO advert online saying that there is no spell caster like him and so many other testimonies about him from various people and from various countries in the world were it was written that Otis spell temple is the best that there is non to be compared to his work, Already i have personally take a decision never to apply to any spell caster online again after loosing such amount of funds on line to those scammers.But i don't really know what drew my spirit / attention to that advert online that faithful afternoon, { I call it a faithful afternoon because all i desire was granted to me. } There was an email at the end of his advert and on the good comment from the FBI and various people about him, I decided to send him an email telling him my problem about my lost job, money that i have lost to scammers and also having problems with the love of my life that i want to get married to. After some few minutes i received an email from him that contain the spell application form that i filled out and he told me that to get my spell casted that i will have to get some items that i could not get here when i went in-search for it. He said if i can not get the items, That is going to cost me an amount of just $390 dollars for my kind of case that i told him about which i doubted to be another scam online, As i have read so many tips online that money should not be sent to someone you do not know via western union / money gram payment information's. And DR OTIS DARKO insisted that i will be sending money to his messenger via this wire means. I was so skeptical because i was scammed in such a way of $700 dollars before,But this same spirits that attracted me to his advert told me inside again that this spell caster is real and noting but real that i should go ahead and send him the amount since i know that there is no how i can get the items that he told me that will be needed for my case. I sent him the charges through his messenger to please help me get the item with the money to get my spell casted.He promised me that in the next 5 to 7 hours that i will start to see results after the spell has been casted to get the love of my life back and others. I could not believe this because i have really been scammed and ripped off too many times for me to just believe till it works. To be sincere i almost faint as i was filled with so much excitement and happiness when my lost lover for over almost 9 months call was entering my phone and i picked the call were he ask if we can see to take things over and also my boss called me to tell me to come for training on my terminated job also due to too many thinking that in the office that result to it. Then in the next 2 days the FBI called to tell me that they have been able to get the scammer that is with my money. I am so proud and happy to spread the good-news about this man because he surprised me in his wonderful and powerfully work that restored back to me my heart desires. One thing that i also loved about this man is that he is understandable and he reduce or negotiate how much you can get for the work you want him to help you with. You want to meet with this great,most powerful spell caster that is 100% scam free,Just send your emails to this email: otisdarko60@yahoo.com as you will get help from him without any disappointment....YOU CAN ALSO ADD HIM UP ON WHATSAPP USING THIS MOBILE NUMBER:+2348077526136

  5. I am just another person that as i would say, the ' GREAT SPELL CASTER OTIS DARKO ' has helped word can not describe all he did for me i would rather you all that would read this were all in my life when all what he did for me materialized because only then will you really believe what i am talking about. I was not born with a royal blood and i do not even come from a decent family by decent i mean a family with wealth and all that and it was more than normal that my relationship with a royal blood will cause a lot of feud in both my home and that of my fiance. Yes he from a royal family but i will not mentions anything else in other to avoid scandal. We meant on a faithful Sunday in church and just like that he swept me off my feet i knew he was the prince but that was not while i fell for him it was more like i fell for him because he seem calm and always at else with everything it was like he did not even see himself as a prince. May be you may think its because it was not next in line but when i got to really know him, i saw that he was just an unembellished person that wanted to live his life in peace. It all start with us being friend and then on every night of Christmas 2004 that he spent at my house he kissed me and believe me in my mind i was Cinderella. It was like my heart was going to burst in flame i never knew i had all those feelings locked away in my heart but he broke the chain that was holding it back with just one kiss. Even when he wanted to be with me he family was again it and it was always like i was the root of what ever problem he was going through with his family. I thought to myself, i can not be the one to take the peace he had i felt he was better and at else without me. We where always of and on and all the while he waited for me with the biggest of hope that i will come back. I knew he was madly in love with me as i was in love with him but being with him was a problem as much as not being with him. His family won't let him be with with me. They opposed our relationship for nine years we where in love but unhappy our relationship was going no where with all the feud. I could no longer be the one an entire family hate and the same time be in love with a guy that his family did not want me. I some how some way got to know about OTIS DARKO a spell cast a great one at that. All i want was to be with my now fiance forever and to be loved and cared for by his family just as it suppose to be. I asked him to help me make my heart desires materialize because i saw a lot of testimonies on the internet about him and the number of people he helped everybody and every blog and forum had his name and his work. I needed to be one of the people he helped. After a lot of conversation he agreed to help me and asked that i get some materials he listed for me. I could get them but i would have made too many people ask question and it needed to be done in a very low profile so i wired the total cost to him so that he can get the materials i needed for the spell and there by avoid exposing myself over what should have be done in secret until the spell process was completed. Yes OTIS DARKO helped me with he spell and he send me a package containing what i can not disclose all i can say is that it was the result of the spell he helped me cast and he gave instruction on how i would use it to make the spell effective. I did all he asked of me and just like he promise me at the beginning, the spell made my fiance entire family love respect and treat me like their own child. To me i would say that OTIS DARKO was my fairy godmother because maybe right now my life would have be miserable basically because i would have had to let go of the love of my life because no one or more like his family would not approve our union. Contact OTIS DARKO because you will only be helping yourself and yourself only use this email as contact otisdarko60@yahoo.com......YOU CAN ALSO ADD HIM UP ON WHATSAPP USING THIS MOBILE NUMBER:+2348077526136

  9. Hello! everyone out here,I am James William from Portland Oregon United state.It has been my desire to help people out with their problems no matter how little my contribution may be.

    As regards to the promise i made to BABA ARUOSA if he could help me get back my girlfriend,i'm using this means to fulfill my promise and also let everybody know there's solution to your problem no matter how difficult you think it is okay.

    I loved a girl for more than 2 years and she told me she was going to marry me.But she would change her mind and tell me she didn't love me anymore and was seeing a guy,which i found out.I begged her to accept me and also tried every means possible to make her know i can't live without her because i really love her but she would pay deaf ears to me.

    We were working in the same company and each time i see her,i wish all this weren't happening.This pain continued till a friend of mine led me to BABA ARUOSA whom he told me was very extremely powerful and has helped with a problem.

    Soon as i contacted him,i knew he was the exact answer to my solution because i felt his powers from his carefully selected words and calmness.I explain all that happened to me and he told me what to do.I did as i was instructed and never doubted him.To my greatest surprise what i felt was almost impossible within the twinkle of an eyes was over.

    She called me pleading for my forgiveness for how she has treated me and that she loves me so much and will never cheat on me again and will marry me.And from that moment till now all we've been experiencing is happiness in our relationship.We'll be getting married soon........lol

    I would advice anyone with problem to contact him via email : templeofsupernaturalcontact@gmail.com for his help.
