Soraya King is NYLESA Welcome Group Coordinator. She co-hosts the new podcast series Let's Talk about It.


I am from Zimbabwe. This is our first UN posting - moving to New York straight into the pandemic, NYLESA provided support and focus into the life in this city.

 A true believer of ‘diving into’, my volunteering as the Welcome Coordinator allowed me to be part of this great group – meeting new people, learning new skills – never in a million years did I ever think I would be hosting a Podcast show!

My background is as varied as my ethnicity – sales, marketing, advertising, HR, various charitable organizations and local NGO’s. I am used to with expat life having been an expat child for over 12 years and an expat spouse for over 10 years in various destinations in Africa, however being a UN Spouse is very new!
