Meet Karen Macha, Volunteer from the United States

My name is Karen Macha and I am 26 years old. My early childhood was spent in Dublin, Ireland, where my parents were missionaries with World Harvest Mission, an organization outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States. I then grew up in this area when we left the field and my father worked in the home office. I studied Accessories Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, and in between my University years I was able to visit Cluj, Romania, where I was impacted spiritually through people I met. Over the years, these relationships grew and I felt I needed to return for a longer period.  I am now in Cluj for 18-24 months with World Harvest Mission, working with another couple from WHM, and volunteering my time among various non-profit organizations based in Cluj. I hope to be intensely involved with the Genezius Association, a Christian Endeavor ministry reaching out to University students, and various projects involving art and design.
