Name: Ugochi Osuoji from Nigeria
Major: Economics of Development (ECD)
What is your background?
I've got a background in Economics (B.Sc) and have been working as lecturer/ researcher for three years and still counting.
Why did you choose ISS?
I chose ISS because of its international reputation and its expertise in relevant research in the area of development studies, in addition, its location in The Hague, gives me the opportunity to build my capacity and have practical experiences as a volunteer or intern in the variety of NGOs situated here.
How will the programme help you in the future?
Considering the love and interest I have for doing the right things and making a difference in our world today, it will enable me to have a deeper and better understanding of the world and its change processes and to develop a set of practical skills to empower lives and address development issues.
Would you recommend ISS to others?
For sure, in fact I already have learnt quite some life valuable lessons here...
