My name is Marion Ebbes and I am an intern at the GROW Public Sector department of Oxfam. I am very passionate about development economics and after learning much about small-scale interventions on local level, I am very excited to now get to learn a lot about value chain research on larger scale and influencing in the public domain.
- What has been your biggest success until now?
My biggest (most recent) success has been my MSc thesis. Not only because I am happy with the result, but also because going to Ethiopia for gathering data was a challenge for me that I have been proud of beating.
- What is your best memory?
I cannot come up with one single best memory. But I am sure that if there were one, it would include sun and a bunch of lovely people.
- If you could do anything you’d want right now, what would it be?
I would travel the world and see more countries, people and challenges in real life, before I started working on improving it.
- As a kid, what did you want to be when you’d grow up?
I have had many dream jobs when I was younger, but the main thing I wanted to be was a teacher.
