Programme: MSc Media, Communication and Development, 2012
Current Position: Southeast Asia Programme Assistant, World Conservation Union/International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Bangkok
I graduated from the MSc programme in Media, Communication and Development with distinction in 2012. During my studies, I had the chance to learn from and engage with professors as well as exchange ideas with my peers. Whilst at LSE, I worked as a research assistant at the Department's media think tank POLIS and at the International Institute for Environment and Development in London. These were great experiences, as was my education at LSE. The degree truly readied me for a future career, and it provided me with invaluable professional and interpersonal skills and capabilities.
Upon graduation, I worked on an interim contract with the European Union's executive body, the European Commission, based in Brussels, Belgium. I now work at IUCN's (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Asia Regional Office, with postings in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City thus far. As IUCN's Programme Assistant for Southeast Asia, my main tasks are related to evaluation of and reporting for EU-funded regional development and environmental conservation initiatives across the SE Asian region. I appreciate applying all that I learnt at LSE to a professional context.
