My semester working with IBJ in Geneva, Switzerland absolutely shaped my career path and transformed my understanding of what "justice" means.

I was lucky to start a 5 month internship at IBJ before my law degree. The internship allowed me to work in provinces and explore stunning corners of Cambodia I would never have seen otherwise.
