Her first paycheck: “It was a lump sum for doing field research in schools in Lusaka Province for four weeks in 2014. It was 4,500 Kwacha — about $255. It was calculated to include meals and accommodation for me as a research assistant, but it was little even back then and most of us ran out of money by the third week.”
