Kelly Roberts (UK) 2017-2019
Pursuing a path that stimulated my passion for different cultures, learning and social change, I spent several years volunteering and working in community education, youth work and international development. I vividly remember searching for ‘next step’ options whilst volunteering in Swaziland and discovering the aptly named IMAESC programme; I did not apply for any other course. If this did not work out for me, I was going to continue doing adult education for social change in different ways. I can say now that after just a few months on the course, I already feel a growing confidence in myself and the inspiring community of peers I find myself working, learning and living life with. Not yet at the stage to know my next ‘next step’, I can at least encourage others considering this course to go for it! Living and learning with people from all over the world in 3 different countries is an exciting and rewarding opportunity for personal and professional growth. And it’s fun!
