The UN, New York Im incredibly grateful to the Internship Programme for helping get my foot in the door at the UN, giving my career a huge boost.
Ashinaga, Japan Going to Japan had been a childhood dream of mine, so I knew it was risky going in with high expectations. That said, I'm happy to say that all my expectations were exceeded. Everything about Japan made me want to stay even longer.
