Internship, With the charity Bridges for Communiites in refugee camps, Jordan and Palestine

Hannah Gretton 2nd year English Literature and president of Student Action for Refugees.

My experience in working in the refugee camps has given me more ideas for new projects that Cardiff's Student Action for Refugees group can get involved with.  My participation in the East-West Youth forum has inspired me to become involved with the Bridges for Communities in Cardiff and I am planning an East West Youth forum in Cardiff to involve Cardiff Students.  I am hoping to apply to the university of Jordan after I graduate.  The course of my life has been drastically changed by this opportunity.

Update- The internship has helped me run Student Action for Refugees, a university society of which I am president this year.  Teaching English in the refugee camps in Jordan has given me ideas to develop our own refugee English conversation classes in Cardiff, and a greater cultural understanding to help asylum seekers settle.  The charity I worked with has asked me to make some films for them about the stories of refugees living in Jordan.
