Hi my name is Olivia and I am the newest EAP intern here at Scalabrini. I am 19 years old and in my third year of a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Psychology and Sociology and minoring in Anthropology. Although I have lived in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, I call New Zealand home. Everybody who knows me well enough would be able to tell you how strong minded I am when it comes to issues of human rights and how humanitarian work has always been an ambition of mine. As I followed the recent refugee crisis in Europe, the world’s various immigration systems and many of the attitudes and reactions that came from it, this ambition grew. I have loved every second of the short time I have spent at Scalabrini and look forward to the next few months here. I count myself lucky to be able to work alongside such passionate and driven people and to be a part of the strong EAP team. I am constantly being inspired by the clients who take part in our workshops. Despite all the challenges they have had to overcome, they remain motivated and determined to improve their situation. Thanks so much for having me Scalabrini!
