Well, it’s the blog that we’ve been waiting for. The last 20 months have been tough for everyone. There is no understatement for the impact COVID-19 has had on individuals, families, countries, and businesses across the world. For us, it halted the delivery of our overseas programs; a huge part of our mission in igniting compassion and supporting students in their development as global citizens and supporting our communities overseas.

I live in Melbourne and am in my final year of my double degree- Applied Public Health and Global Studies at the Australian Catholic University. I have always had a passion for promoting and advocating for women’s health and gender equality through empowerment, education, and opportunities, which is exactly what this internship gave me the chance to do.

Overall, I honed skills in cross-communication and critical thinking including, collaborating with stakeholders, asking questions, and finding solutions to challenges by identifying and analysing how those challenges can be mitigated. The program itself was also very flexible with work and uni commitments, and the experience and skills developed was invaluable! As such, the unique internship with Challenges Abroad provides the opportunity to make a positive impact during unprecedented times, and I highly recommend it to everyone!
