Tobey Evonne Berriaultfrom Canada is Associate Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) Officer with MINUSMA

"I help coordinate & execute the military integration & eventual reinsertion of combatants in the north of #Mali. I am usually the only female, in an environment dominated by local & international military men. What keeps me motivated is knowing that my active presence in such processes sends a strong message to both local armed groups & UN peacekeepers that women can effectively work at the same level & in the same domain. My hope is that the women who follow me will face less challenges during these interactions, just like I benefited from the barriers challenged by the few women who came before me.”
