What do you like about what you do?
I can do what I like most - that is, writing. My boss hugely appreciates my insights on cultural and linguistic issues and this is very rewarding.
How has your time at SOAS helped you succeed in this role?
SOAS helped me in looking at my own cultural background with different eyes. Plus, reading and writing a lot also helped me in honing my linguistic skills.
Can you give current students any tips on getting into this kind of work?
I did my jobhunting on LinkedIn, answering to a number of societies. I was very spontaneous and tried to give them what they wanted. After all, I had nothing to lose. Be open-minded, humble and proactive.
