"I’ve spent a lot of my time at different universities feeling like the student number that sits at the top of my assignments, but this opportunity, and working with ACPIR- a centre doing world-class research and projects, learning from people who are top of their field, was an unexpectedly confidence-building and career-propelling culmination of my Masters program.

This internship in Fiji led me to reconsider ideas about what a career in international development might look like, and consider the opportunities closer to home."
