"After completing my MA, I studied French in France for 2 years, then became a JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) volunteer in Bolivia and worked for 2 years in the field of social development. I also worked as an associate expert in JICA and worked for the Gender Equality Division. Until last year, I was working in Gulu, Northern Uganda, in charge of setting-up and managing the JICA Gulu Office which was newly opened in 2009. Based on my experience, I am now pursuing career opportunities in UN agencies, such as UNDP, FAO or WFP where I can be engaged in projects on community development and people's empowerment with gender perspectives." - MA Gender Analysis in International Development
