BA International Relations
"My interest in International Relations first started when I was in high school. I attended an International School in Vienna, which significantly impacted my understanding of differing cultures, religions, practices, and customs. My interest in these areas was cemented during my gap year, I travelled to Africa and Nepal, where I volunteered as a teacher in Africa, and worked with children with both mental and physical illnesses in Nepal. This had a huge impact on me, as I realised how difficult it was, not only to afford medical care, but to access medicine, too. As I developed a strong bond with these children, I knew that availability and access to medicine in developing countries needed to be improved. I look forward to all the great ideas for improvement that this conference will no doubt bring about!"
