I was always interested to work with UNICEF. It was last month that the opportunity came from nowhere. I was scrolling through the Instagram feed like a lazy dog that I am. Drinking coffee. Contemplating life. This is when I clicked on UNICEF’s story by mistake. It was something along the lines of “Do you want to see change in the world?” and I was like YAAAAAS!
So I swiped up, which took me to a link where you had to write a sample blog post on any one of the given topics: “Children Uprooted” or “Violence Against Children”. I was too lazy. It was not until a day before the deadline that a friend found out about this and forced me to write and send something. So I did, 2 hours before the deadline.
A week later an email popped up with the usual “Congratulations!”. I was more than overwhelmed. I have currently started working with them and it is going great!
The best part being able to talk and interact with 8 more people around the world and working with them very closely. The culture and thought exchange is amazing!
