After successfully completing the Politics Institute of the 5th iteration of the Young Women's Political Leadership Insitute (YWPLI), our amazing 2022 YWPLI fellows are busy with the internship module. As a part of the 11-month-long course, our YWPLI Fellows intern at various governmental agencies like municipalities, parliamentarian offices, and/or ministries for 100+ hours per month under different women leaders. This experiential learning opportunity helps expand fellow’s understanding of these women leaders' leadership styles and working ecosystem.
Hear from two of our 2022 YWPLI Fellows regarding their internship experiences -
1.Shristi, 2022 YWPLI Fellow - Interned for an election campaign of an independent woman candidate for Parliament Election (Parliament & provincial election 2079 BS)
What has been the biggest learning from the internship? How do you think it will help in your professional life?
"Firstly, I understood that there should be proper planning during the political campaign to avoid flaws & mistakes as much as possible. Secondly, I saw the love and hope of the people towards young people who dare to step on a journey to challenge the system. This has moved me differently. My biggest learning is that people forever remember what the person did and how their presence made them feel. And the only way to be alive among people is to work for the collective good and in a consistent manner. This will help me silently and crucially. It will boost me to be capable of people’s trust and earn the appreciation of honest critics in the future. "
2. Ajita, 2022 YWPLI Fellow - Interned for an election campaign of an independent woman candidate for Parliament Election (Parliament & provincial election 2079 BS)
"From the internship, I learned a lot qualitatively, it was the biggest learning ever. From internal political factors to strategic political campaigns, it was great learning there. Since I am keenly interested in engaging in mainstream politics in the future, I believe this internship will help me somehow to design political campaigns for myself and teach me how to tackle possible obstacles."
3. Grishma, 2022 YWPLI Fellow - Internship at the Federal Parliament Secretariat
"I am very excited about the internship. I am particularly interested in exploring the situation of women and youth welfare, issues relating to unemployment, and steps taken by the government to address these issues through my internship."
