About me, well my name is Therese and I am 25 years old, an International communication undergrad with a Swedish and Egyptian background. I love to travel and explore and have lived in 4 different countries and hope to live in many many more. I am always up for trying new things and believe in going where life takes you, and I suppose that sums up how I ended up joining the WWF family.
I came across the WWF Internship/Volunteer program by a complete coincident, after graduating university in 2009 the financial crises was making it challenging to say the least to find a job. Internships seemed to be the only realistic option and I started browsing around for organizations I believed in and which inspired me. I had moved back to Stockholm from Paris and decided to try living back home for a while and found an opening with Medecine sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders).
I worked as an association intern assisting the board on meetings, events and member services. It was an interesting time, and I gained great respect for the organization. However after a couple of month my travelling bone started getting restless and I came across the WWF volunteer program which promised field work combined with video production, how could I pass on that. So I applied and soon got an email, asking if I would consider a volunteer position at the International headquarters instead of going to the field, and I thought…why not.
