Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Asia, Global Internship in Mumbai


Kia Orana, I’m Caitlin. I’ve just completed my BA in Criminology and Politics and International Relations and an LLB. 

I consider myself a very adventurous person with a love for hiking, sports, photography and being outdoors. I’m super grateful to have the opportunity to work a Global Internship in Mumbai, India. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I look forward to the learnings, challenges and fun experiences to come. 

I’m most excited to learn about the culture in India and how the economy compares to NZ. This will be a great opportunity to live and work outside my comfort zone and be more independent in another country. 

If you want to follow along with me on my journey, check out my blogs that are to come. Thank you, Arohanui.
