Last week, Chioma Wuche, finished her internship as the Equalities Projects Intern. Here is what Chioma has to say about her time interning for IARS:

"My time at IARS has finally come to an end; surprisingly I never anticipated that this day would come so soon. Previously I had been interning at another London Based Think Tank and it was not the best experience, so I was apprehensive jumping into a new role. Despite this, IARS surpassed all my expectations. I am so grateful to IARS for being patient with me and making me feel like a valued member of the team. The staff team have been so warm and welcoming and over the last few months I have gotten to know everyone so well.

Working as the Equalities Projects Intern I assisted with projects alongside Rosa (the Equalities Projects Coordinator) and I got to be part of a truly incredible project that aims at empowering women and other marginalised groups. Working with IARS’ Women’s Advisory board is one of the highlights for me, It was a pleasure to have worked with such vibrant women, I learned so much from their stories and I will take away so much from my meetings with them. I am also forever grateful to IARS for also giving me the opportunity to travel to Poland as part of the Abused No More Project. As an Intern I never expected to play a role in representing the organisation internationally, so for that I am so thankful for that great opportunity.

IARS is carrying out such credible work and I am glad to have contributed to that in some sort of way.  I am so happy to have spent the last 3 months here learning and being part of a great team. Thank you to everyone at IARS!" 

We are truly grateful for all the great contributions Chioma's made to IARS work and projects and would like to wish her the best of luck in her future endeavours! Thank you, Chioma!
