Working as an intern with the International Communities Organisation, was an opportunity that has impacted positively on my academic and professional life. Interning as a Project Worker at the ICO, while studying for my postgraduate degree in Human Rights, Globalisation and Justice at the University of Keele, UK; helped me to practically understand the theories and varied knowledge in human rights.
Also, I liked that fact that interns were given the opportunity to grow as budding professionals and were encouraged to work independently as well as a member of a team with others from a diverse background. What particularly attracted me to work with ICO, was their focus on advocating for the protection of human rights of minority groups, such as ethnic minorities across Europe.
