Former Manjimup resident Eloise Skoss recently completed a three-month internship with Global Citizen.

During her time with Global Citizen, Ms Skoss was involved in research and project management, including helping with the Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park, which raised more than USD $1 billion for poverty.

“The festival was the culmination of Global Citizen’s work for the past year and had been the focus of most of my work for the first two months of my internship,” Ms Skoss said.

Having recently graduated with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science, with a Major in Population Health, Ms Skoss was assigned to Global Citizen’s Global Policy and Government Affairs team.

Ms Skoss said her experience had changed her ideas about the solution to global issues.

“Going forward, we need creative and innovative approaches to issues, and my experience at Global Citizen showed me what can be achieved by a small group of people when operating in a dynamic and ambitious way,” she said.

The internship was supported by the McCusker Centre for Citizenship.
