I did a year of voluntary work in Manila, Philippines with various deaf organisations including Philippine Federation of the Deaf. My interest in International Development has led me to do voluntary work including being a trustee for a deaf organisation which support deaf people in Burundi and Rwanda. Prior to taking up a PhD position, I worked for the Deaf Ethnic Women’s Association in London. All these previous skills and experiences enable me to participate in MobileDeaf, doing a PhD within the labour migration project.
