Here’s a conversation I had with Rachel on the last day of Pre-Departure, where we talked about myself and what I’ll be doing in Jakarta, Indonesia!
My name's Jacob, I'm studying Anthropology at UVic, and I'll be in Jakarta, Indonesia working with the Center for Indonesian Policy Studies. CIPS is a political think tank that focuses on policies involving Trade, Education, and Community and Livelihood. Politics, and how it effects people's lives, is really interesting to me so I'm really excited for this opportunity.
