My Profile

Hello! I'm a recent Geography graduate from the University of Worcester. I've been interested in international development since my teenage years, and I studied a select few modules during my time at university which were directly associated with issues in the developing world. I have volunteered in a charity shop in the past, and during the summer of 2013, I took part in a trip to Madagascar for six weeks.This was to collect data for my dissertation, assessing the impact of ecotourism in Southern Madagascar. As an ecotourist myself, this was an ideal opportunity to interact with the local community and identify the positive and negative impacts of ecotourism within local villages. This trip really developed me as an individual and has given me more drive to learn about international development. I'd love to keep getting involved!
