Julia is an international studies student majoring in development at RMIT and have undertaken an Internship with Assisi Aid Projects as a requirement of my degree, though also to get a better understanding of how NGO’s function. 

My main areas of interests are global and gender development and for this reason I felt compelled to complete a placement with AAP. Collaborating with organisations based in the communities they are helping and uplifting local voices is so vital to success in the field of development and is something AAP puts emphasis on.
