Intern Testimonial

“My internship experience  can be best described as ‘priceless’. This has not only given me a strong foundation for my future career but has also truly empowered me toward wellness and sustainable health. It was very rewarding to be able to make a positive difference to the lives of others.

As an intern, I was given key responsibilities in supporting the overall goals of the marketing & events department and was allowed the freedom to pursue my own development opportunities. It was exciting to work on variety of assignments including using social media to raise awareness and engage with supporters, developing engaging marketing collateral, and managing fundraising events etc.  In particular, I really enjoyed working on a fundraising project called the You are Beautiful exhibition which gave me a chance to hear the most inspiring and life changing stories which have changed the way I see life.

I was lucky to work in an environment with talented and committed professionals who took a personal interest in my career development. I learnt a great deal in a short period of time! Thank you  for giving me this valuable opportunity!”
