I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work as a policy intern at the Institute for Study and Development Worldwide(IFSD), Australia. The experts are incredibly proficient with an enthusiasm to guide and support interns by passing on their experience. It has been a fantastic journey, and I have gained valuable insights in the area of my highest interest. Also, I am very thankful for guidance to produce the publication, and this means a lot to me.
