Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Asia, Global Internship in Mumbai
Kia ora! I’m Angelica, and I am in the final year of my LLB (Hons) / BA conjoint, majoring in Politics and International Relations and Psychology. Outside of my studies, I love to travel, spend time at the beach, and cook for my friends and family.
I have always been incredibly passionate about human rights advocacy, and I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work in this space with the Vipla Foundation in Mumbai.
