“As an aspiring professional in the field of policy making and public affairs, I am excited to be working in a sector essential to a well-functioning democracy. Democracy works best when good governance and constitutional accordance is upheld through the work of independent institutions such as the Foundation. I hope my time here will allow me to positively contribute to this process, as well as provide me with experience to enrich my research and writing skills.”
