After graduating from the ANU in 2013, I stayed in Canberra to continue working as a Sub-Editor at LexisNexis Capital Monitor in the Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery. In March 2014, I travelled to the Netherlands to undertake a six-month internship at the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) as the 2014 Peter Nygh Intern. After completing my internship, I was fortunate enough to be offered a permanent position as a Legal Officer at the HCCH, and I have remained in The Hague ever since. Even though I may now be far from Canberra, I am reminded every day just how fortunate I am to be an graduate of the ANU.
My work regularly involves employing a many different skills developed throughout my studies, combining aspects of law, political science, international relations and language, just to name a few. Although I have worked in international environments before, never before have I been in a workplace where so many different nationalities are represented, and I thoroughly enjoy being able to practice four different languages in a single day. With a degree from a world-renowned institution with universally respected programs and courses, I feel confident that I am extremely well equipped for the fast-paced and complex world of international law.
