Astrid Melchior Olesen

Intern, from August 2018 to January 2019

Astrid has been a Momentum intern from August 2018 to January 2019. She did the internship as part of her Master’s studies in International Development from Sciences Po, Paris School of International Affairs. She did her bachelor degree at Copenhagen Business School in International Business and Politics. Throughout her studies, Astrid has had a strong interest in developing countries, an interest she has pursued with a semester in India and other internships with various organisations.

I wanted to become a Momentum intern to learn more about social business: how to combine business with social purpose. In addition, I wished to gain a real field experience and to be close to local life in a developing country – which I’m certainly experiencing here in rural Kenya!”
