Meet Angellah Mwafongo from Lilongwe, Malawi! She is a recent graduate of the African Leadership University. This summer, Angellah will be interning through Linguistic Horizons in the UK!

Tell us more about you:

I’m a Social Scientist who loves advocacy work and open-minded people. My favorite things to do include creative writing, listening to the same 10 songs at a time and watching YouTube video essays about any and everything. I hope to make a difference in the world. 

What is your main motivation for participating in the program?

After graduating and coming back home, I sought out many opportunities to give me an entry point into the international market. I plan to work in diplomacy and internships are a great way to gain experience, make connections and network with people that can get me to where I want to be.

What are your future career goals?

I hope to publish academic and fictional books of my own, travel as a part of my work and make an impact on the educational system in my country.

What is your favorite quote?

What is your proudest accomplishment?

Graduating. It’s something I always believed was a given for me, but after the obstacles I faced in my last year, I am proud I followed through.
