My decision to come to Richmond Vale Academy in March 2017 was aligned with my path towards getting more and more involved in the development sector. By then I was studying a couple of subjects of my Master of Development Practice by distance. I saw the opportunity to have a more hands on experience, so I enrolled in the programme. I absolutely loved my time as a volunteer student here. I learned so much, not only about climate change mitigation and adaptation initiatives, but also a lot about myself!
