Advocate Karen McKenzie
I would like to express my most sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Karen during this time of loss. You are constantly within my thoughts. I had the privilege of working under Karen for a year (2012-2013) whilst at the Commonwealth Secretariat, Human Rights Unit. This year was incredibly formative for me, and I attribute it to Karen. She was a real inspiration, and served to open my eyes and educate me on human rights. The time I spent working with Karen will continue to live with me as I navigate life and work. I am incredibly sorry for the loss, not only to Karen’s family and friends, but to the wider human rights community.
