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.


  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
