I am currently a student of the Masters in Development Practice at Trinity College Dublin and I have been delivering excellent results in this educational pursuit for the past year and a half. This course, in tandem with previous international development internships, has been instrumental in the acquisition and development of a wide variety of crucial skills necessary for a successful career in sustainable development.
I possess significant expertise in working in developing countries, having completed research internships in government institutions in addition to playing a key role in substantially improving an underfunded school in rural Tanzania. In my most recent internship in the National Institute of Statistics, I strived to utilise my detail-orientated skills to perform comprehensive research on complex data concerning the use of mobile technology in Rwanda.
As an incredibly flexible individual, I am able to swiftly adapt to culturally diverse environments while delivering remarkable results in high-pressurised environments. During my time with Malindi Secondary School in Tanzania, I was tasked with the construction and repair of two classrooms and two dining halls. This allowed me to significantly further my capabilities in relation to project management, sourcing local personnel to complete the project while closely and effectively managing the allocated budgets.
I am always looking to widen my professional circle and connect with individuals of a similar nature and outlook so please do not hesitate to get in contact with the provided details and I will be in touch as soon as possible.

I grew up in a small village in rural China. At this heartwarming community where people would happily help each other during harvest, my happiest memory is playing with little friends in the crop field. However, a 2009 New Residential Project tore down villages like mine and moved residents to tall buildings. Fierce debate originated from farmers, scholars and policy makers. I expected farmers to value their land, culture, and deeply rooted social norms, but my field research found nearly 50% accepted this change as development. What kind of development is good for Chinese farmers? Are people in other developing countries similarly impacted? Bush School taught me China’s economic development, development projects in Ghana, Nepal, India; how policies were formatted, implemented, and analyzed; and how to incorporate environmental and sustainable elements. From a little girl undergoing the development process to a young professional my passion has always been international development.
