I would like to take part in an overseas program that allows me to actively help people suffering from social injustices. I would like be a part of the solution, making their lives better whilst raising a wider awareness of the issue. I would also hope that such a program could help with my confidence and self-esteem, pushing me out of my comfort zone and forcing me to be more assertive.
I hope to learn the attorney approach to solving human rights issues and also, to use my skills in supporting the projects.
I have always been passionate about becoming a person capable of seeing and conveying a realistic image of individuals and be part of the positive humanitarian development. And by having this internship, I hope I could educate myself about the South African social and economical circumstances and its legal acts.
