Testimony From Previous Interns

Amna Nasir

Hailing from the other side of the border, I was a bit cynical when I first decided to work with FII. However, the two something months of working at FII have been absolutely pleasant and introspectional for me. I learned a lot about intersectional feminism and discovered my strengths and weaknesses during the course of this internship. I loved working on all the tasks assigned to me and each of them has been a personal learning journey for me. The FII team has been a joy to work with and I hope I continue to contribute to FII in whatever way I can.

Sapphira Beth

This was probably one of the best experiences I’ve had, even though it got slightly stressful, I still loved every minute of it. My favourite part was that I actually got to help script a video, and of course learning about feminism and how intersectionality can be applied to India.

Mitsu Sahay

Landing up in Feminism In India for my first internship ever was one of my best decisions. Working there was challenging as you had to constantly keep up with the world along with producing original content every time, but it boosted my capabilities in amazing ways. I wrote articles I never thought I’d be able to pull of, and gained a new perspective towards the world as a place for the marginalized. The task of covering a protest march was one of the highlights of my internship, others including publishing my first article.

Aqsa Khan

My internship at FII has given me a much needed experience and exposure. The tasks given are versatile and interesting, and have helped me improve my work skills and knowledge. For anybody passionate about the fight for gender equality, FII is an ideal platform offering a very holistic experience. The supervisors are supportive and friendly.
