My name is Katleho Matsoso, I am 25 years old and an international undergraduate student atWebsterUniversityinSt. Louis,Missouri. I am currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in International Relations, with a Minor in French.
The reason I decided on pursuing an internship with Ndifuna Ukwazi was primarily to fulfill my credit hours and more importantly to gain valuable experience in a working environment. Moreover, the problems within society that Ndifuna Ukwazi addresses not only focus on local issues, but those on a national and an international level too. Therefore, I personally feel that this applies to me, considering what I am studying.
Thus, my ambition while I am an intern at Ndifuna Ukwazi is not only to utilize the skills that I have acquired, but also to keep learning and gaining as much work experience as I can.
I am a third year university student studying Urban and Environmental Policy at Occidental College in Los Angeles. I spent the last semester studying in Durban and could not bare going back home to the US quite yet, so I found my way to NU.
In school, I enjoy studying urban planning, politics and grassroots organizing. Outside of school, I have volunteered with Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, the American Cancer Society and have tutored in high school classrooms as part of the GEAR UP Program in Los Angeles.
As an intern at NU, I will be working on a research project looking at the significance of design in addressing South Africa’s school infrastructure deficit by comparing both history and modern schools in South Africa and the US. I will then be organizing a seminar relating to that topic.
