Last edited 5th September 2018

Earlier this year, I interned for the Holy See’s (Vatican’s) office at United Nations. Anyone who knows me knows that this has been my dream since I could walk... and it was everything I could wish for. I fell in love wholeheartedly with the work and only more in love with the Church. I watched in awe as the diplomats I worked under stood on the world stage and fought for the dignity and rights of the less fortunate. I hoped one day I could do the same. As I navigated through the grids of New York City, I plotted daily on ways I could return.

Even the mere task of reflection feels boastful.

Don’t Abandon the World’s Poor, Caritas Urges Government

Last edited 3rd April 2018

Fairfax Media reported last Thursday that the government was considering a $400 million a year cut to the overseas aid budget. Sources said the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is “modelling” ways to slice 10 per cent from aid budget even though cuts since 2014 have already reduced Australia’s aid contribution to just 22 cents for every $100 of gross national income, the smallest share on record.
