Where I am based: Bristol, UK
What I do: I’m an intern with the Research and Analysis team, assisting in the provision of quality, accessible and responsive data and research, informing decision-making and trajectory of various projects within the organisation. My role involves data checking and producing analysis and narratives on financial expenditures focused on international development, aggregated expenditures, and specific sectors. My current work is on development finance, within the Investments to End Poverty (ITEP) and Reproductive Health–Family Planning (RHFP) projects.
Previous experience: I’m currently studying for a BSc in International Development with Economics at the University of Bath, covering development studies and economics, policy design and implementation, finance, and qualitative and quantitative research. As the Virtual Co-ordinator of University of Bath’s Amnesty Society, I assisted in deriving and delivering multiple campaigns including: Asylum Seekers’ Scholarship, Black-Owned Businesses and Decolonising/Re-Structuring the Curriculum (extensions of the Black Lives Matter campaign), and anti-sexual harassment and assault reforms at the university. I have been involved with two Vertically Integrated Projects focusing on multidisciplinary policy and infrastructure proposals for sustainable transport and decarbonising heating in Bath. My previous internship at Beplas UK provided incredible industry-specific insight into the future of plastics in construction and sustainable development.
