After I graduated from Journalism School in Chile, I worked in media and also in Communications Agencies, but I always felt that something was missing. As I had always been curious about religion, I decided that it was time to study a Master’s degree in Religion, Politics and Society from the University of Birmingham.
During the end of my Master’s, I decided to combine my two degrees together and begin my three-month internship in the Marketing and Communications Department at HAD. During my time in this role, I have had the opportunity to learn more about my area of expertise, adding knowledge about Marketing strategies, writing blogs and also being part of a CRM project for HAD.
What I expect from this internship is to learn, learn and learn some more. I would love that this opportunity can be my first step into growing in the NGO sector, putting together my training in Journalism with the skills gained in HAD into a better professional and social worker. What I love about HAD is that interns are taken seriously and challenged every-day, which has made my time here meaningful. Also, it has made me feel that I am here with a purpose, which I think is the best thing about working in an NGO.
