Olivia is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies and Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies at DePaul University. Throughout her education she has been specifically interested in human rights issues. Olivia has been working for Human Rights Watch throughout the past year, serving as an intern in their Chicago office. She is excited about making the transition to Scalabrini, because she believes that the organization will provide her with important hands-on experience. Olivia is incredibly thankful for the opportunity to live and work in Cape Town for the next two months, as she has a break from classes. She is looking forward to this learning opportunity, and hopes to gain a better understanding of the challenges that many migrants and refugees face. Moreover, she is excited to engage with staff members and those participating in Scalabrini’s programs.
