Pre-Departure: Ghana in Fall 2016!
Hello! My name is Anaïs Voski and I’ve recently graduated with a combined honours degree in journalism and political science from Carleton University. Born in Ottawa, I come from a multicultural background and was raised by a parent who works in international development — so I’ve always known that one day I’d like to make my own positive contribution to the world, and I think Ghana is a great place to start.
I’ll be working for Farm Radio International in Tamale from October 2016, which is a perfect fit due to my strong interest in journalism and environmental issues. I’ll be a Journalism Intern combining my technical skills in radio broadcasting and communications with my studies in sustainable development.
I very much look forward to arriving and getting to know Ghanaian people and culture first-hand. Professionally, I hope to build on my journalistic skills to meaningfully contribute to information and knowledge sharing on the ground, while as a person I hope to grow from the many mutual learning opportunities an entirely new country provides. Although I depart in the fall, I’m already super excited!
