After the YPP
"Back in 1995, my YPP days were wide-ranging: from horizontal projects on technology and job creation, to country desk work in economics, to the politics around negotiations in trade. It was a tremendous opportunity for me to grow from an academic environment to a place in which I had to mobilise knowledge and skills for the broader community."
"Be proactive in making your 2-year experience as enriching as possible, have good mentors, work on compelling and high impact projects, experience the diversity of the organisation, work with passion, flexibility and commitment to make a difference for the international community, in any of the fields you deal with. Never stop learning and challenging yourself and those around you."
