Having volunteered at various Tel Aviv-based NGOs that help asylum seekers, I was interested in learning more about global migration and gaining knowledge and skills to start a career in this sector. During the M.A. in Migration Studies at TAU, I completed an internship at the TEREM clinic for individuals lacking legal status in Israel, mapping healthcare seeking amongst asylum seekers during pregnancy.
Shortly after completing my degree, I began an internship in the Community Services department of UNHCR Tel-Aviv, and I am now working full-time in the Resettlement department. The knowledge I gained from courses such as the Legal and Ethical Perspectives on Refugees and the multitude of courses about the dynamics of global migration has been instrumental in my current job.

Before I came to study at Tel Aviv University, I worked as a lawyer in immigration law in Belgium. I wanted to study migration as I knew it would add value to my professional career. After receiving a scholarship from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Israel, I jumped at the chance! This program has helped me better to understand the framework of migrations from a sociological perspective. The class' Immigration Policy in Comparative Perspective' taught by Dr. Avinoam Cohen was particularly enlightening. I found it fascinating to analyze how different countries deal with immigration and debate issues with my fellow students. They came from all over the world and thus brought different perspectives.
