I am a Sociology student completing my third year at the University of Greenwich and in doing so, taking on an intern role at the IARS organisation as part of my work placement. During the time spent here, I hope to expand my already existing knowledge about the government and the systems that run throughout society, and how they help or hinder our lives depending on how we relate to various social factors. I have an innate passion for social justice and the ongoing fight for equality amongst all who inhabit this society. I want to work within the community, potentially in prisons or social work, helping to rehabilitate offenders and prevent the chance of them reoffending. We as a society can hope to do this by working with them to locate the source of the reason as to why they turned to crime. This is far more effective than ostracising them and punishing them further for their crimes. I am most interested in obtaining a career in the justice system, social work or a mental health unit.
