With CAPI from May, 2004 - December, 2005
Accreditations: BA (UVic)
Gwyn Robinson, a UVic graduate, worked as the Program Assistant for Thai Youth Action Programs (TYAP) in Chiang Mai, Thailand, as part of CAPI's 2004-05 Internship Program funded by the Centre.
In describing her placement Gwyn said:
"I have been extremely fortunate to be given this opportunity by the Centre for Asia Pacific Initiatives. It is inspiring to be surrounded by such enthusiasm and to be given the opportunity to connect and learn from people who work tirelessly to achieve their goals. It can be challenging to work in an environment where the language and cultural norms are unlike my own. It is through these challenges, however, that I am recognizing this internship to be as much an opportunity for personal growth as it is for educational advancement."
