Hi, I’m Renee from the Netherlands.
I’m a 20-year old student at Zuyd University of Applied sciences and currently studying People and Business Management. I am doing my specialism in Human Resource Management because of my interests in things like recruiting, supporting people during their career and the development of employees.
Last week I started my internship at the Scalabrini Centre in Cape Town. I’m so excited for doing my internship in this amazing NGO for the next 5 months. I have specifically chosen an NGO in South-Africa because of the high level of unemployment here and I really want to make a difference to the people who need assistance in applying for a job. I hold the opinion that all humans are equal and because of that I have an interest in interacting with people from different backgrounds and cultures during my internship.
I have been in Cape Town for a week now and I have already fallen in love with this amazing city, its multicultural spirit and its wonderful views.
I’m so thankful The Scalabrini Centre offered me the opportunity to do my internship in such a beautiful place. I think my experience will be a valuable asset to my future career.
