    Haya wadau jaribuni za UN.
    watanzania bado ni wachache sana kwenye UN and few Tanzanians who work for the UN have good reputation. Mara nyingine huwa some UN organizations zinatoa priorities kwa less represented nationalities if you meet the minimum qualifications (it might be you).
    Therefore jaribuni, you have nothing to lose.

    all the best.
