“I am studying MA in Gender and Development at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex.I am a project management professional with a learning focused in development related issues like economic empowerment, gender equality and sustainability. I wanted to gain some hands-on experience of working in a library and being a Collection Advisor was an appropriate opportunity for me to do that. “
