We have a new intern!

Uma joins the International Secretariat

When I had to choose an internship, the activist in me was looking for a place where I could discover cultures and contribute to a better world, on my way. I’ve always been passionate about different cultures. SCI shows the connections between all these unique cultures. Working in a big organization like SCI made me realize that it doesn’t matter how big the distance between people is. But when you work together, you can make a huge difference in the world, despite the differences. That is one of the many reasons why I chose SCI for my internship, and I am very excited to be a part of it. For me, I hope that this is the start of a new beginning.
