  • Internship: CFO Europe, 2008

The Marjorie Deane Financial Journalism Foundation’s internship programme broadened my horizons both personally and professionally. Working for CFO Europe gave me the chance to work with extremely dedicated, talented, and motivated journalists. I also remember going to the editorial meetings of The Economist and being amazed at the structured chaos that shaped my favourite source of information.

After the internship I completed a master’s degree in Australia on an Endeavour Europe Scholarship. I am now back in my home country helping to start-up a microfinance project focused on helping the Roma community and others living in extreme poverty. The internship helped me in both of these experiences, and more generally to appreciate working in different places and with a wide variety of people.

I am very thankful for the opportunity that was given to me and will continue to fondly remember my time as a Marjorie Deane intern, wherever I may be in the world.
