Testimonials

I have gained much more out of my experience as a Junior Professional Consultant with UNA-Canada’s International Development & Diplomacy Internship Programme than I initially imagined. I am very grateful for having had this opportunity. I've been involved in many meaningful projects and impactful initiatives at UNICEF and attended many high-level meetings and conferences. It has truly been an extraordinary experience that has accelerated my career.
