Patricia Gonzales Masias, Australia
I am of Peruvian background and have always been interested in current affairs and social justice. My experience in the field started at Botany Multicultural Centre, an Australian institution helping migrants and refugees. Then my ten years experience as a Spanish interpreter allowed me to witness first-hand violations of human rights. But it was my involvement as a Legal Officer with the National Human Rights Consultation carried out by the Australian Government that inspired me to pursue a career in this field.
Along with these desires, I am interested in Indigenous issues, especially in relation to children. I would like to utilise the skills gained in the program to help indigenous people around the world.
