I am a volunteer with Amnesty International's UK Press Office. My role involves analysing and evaluating Amnesty's presence in print and online news publications as well as website traffic. I also write a weekly blog titled, 'Human rights news of the week', where I summarise several current human rights issues around the globe. As a volunteer at Amnesty I am given many opportunities to help other departments. I have thus also gained experience in event organisation and have contributed to campaigns.
I explored various social issues such as the impact of new media on political discourse, the penal system and completed a dissertation. My dissertation explored unpaid internships in relationship to modern day slavery. I was awarded a first for my dissertation and a 2.1 overall.
