Gina Walker Testimonial
Gina Walker, United Kingdom
Having volunteered at various Tel Aviv-based NGOs that help asylum seekers, I was interested in learning more about global migration and gaining knowledge and skills to start a career in this sector. During the MA in Migration Studies at TAU, I completed an internship at the TEREM clinic for individuals lacking legal status in Israel, mapping healthcare-seeking amongst asylum seekers during pregnancy. Shortly after completing my degree, I began an internship in the Community Services department of UNHCR Tel Aviv, and I am now working full-time in the Resettlement department. The knowledge I gained from courses such as the Legal and Ethical Perspectives on Refugees and the multitude of courses about the dynamics of global migration has been particularly useful in my current job.
