THEA PHILIP Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Laws "The Student Opportunity Fund made it possible for me to travel to Washington D.C. and intern with the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, which is an international non-profit that seeks to eradicate child sexual abuse, exploitation and abduction. At times it was quite confronting, but it was also incredibly rewarding knowing that my work was contributing to a safer world for children."
