Internship testimonial – Audrey Ramel

Posted on Posted in Association's life

Audrey Ramel, who has a Masters degree in European and International Law, completed a 6 month internship at Humanium.

“On the cusp of a new year, I am writing this account of my internship with the belief that in the months and years to come Humanium will carry out large projects that will offer children around the world the prospect of a better future.

The 6 month internship that I just completed as head of the Children’s Rights Project allowed me to grow personally and professionally. I am now convinced that if we all combine our time and skills, we can contribute to the well-being of thousands of children and make them smile again.

Surrounded by a dynamic team of children’s rights advocates, I was able to work in various capacities and in particular, help with the development of the Children’s Rights project. One of my main tasks was writing articles on the situation of Children’s Rights in numerous countries.

For that, I had to analyze and compare data from different internal and external sources in order to summarize the situation of Children’s Rights in each country.

In addition to my many responsibilities, I also helped coordinate our volunteers who represent more than 60 countries. Meeting those who help us on a daily basis and then building a trusting relationship with them was very rewarding.

Finally, I would like to say a big thank you to Olivier and Arndt Soret for giving me the wonderful opportunity to have my first professional experience be at Humanium.

Thank you, Presidents, colleagues, volunteers and Shaya for the 6 wonderful months that went by too quickly.  Many moments will stay forever ingrained in my memory.

Every day this internship reminded me that despite the difficulty in enforcing Children’s Rights, we need to be optimistic and ambitious as we face our ever changing world so that day after day we can continue to defend the rights of all children, for they are our future.”
