Lorraine PHuman Rights Intern | Virtual / Remote
My university gave me the opportunity to start an internship through Connect-123 and it is an opportunity I will always be grateful for. Connect-123 was incredible throughout the entire process of pairing me with an internship. I was asked several questions about my interests, career goals, and strengths which made my internship all the more beneficial and insightful, given that it catered to my professional and personal goals. My internship was remote but with the help of Connect-123, I was able to establish a great professional relationship with the organization I was paired with and never felt disconnected. During my time as an intern for a foundation that contributes to democratic consolidation and strengthening by promoting research and public awareness on security, intelligence, and defense reform I gained a lot of insight into a country and culture I was not familiar with. It was an opportunity that reinforced my aspiration to pursue a career in public interest and human rights law.
