DIG DEEPER

While travelling on the Duffy Family Ambassador Scholarship, I did a five week internship with an incredible organization that liberates children from poor working conditions and places them in healthy environments that include education, food, and family. This was an incredible experience. Spending time with the kids (former labourers), taking part in press conferences and campaigns, I learned so much from my colleagues there and the kids who chose to speak up and make their own demands from political leaders.
