Sucess stories_9_3854148736I am currently undertaking a conjoint degree in a Bachelor of Laws and Arts at the University of Auckland, double majoring in Political Studies and Anthropology, with prospective Postgraduate study in International relations and Human Rights under the Master of Professional Studies degree. This qualification, furthered by an aspiring Rotary-funded Peace Fellowship, alongside my envisioned active volunteer involvement in Zonta, Amnesty International, and United Nations Youth, will form a valuable basis for my future career aspirations as the Director Human Rights Proceedings, working for the Human Rights Commission. The specific focus will be on gender justice, peace building, conflict resolution and prevention.
