Olivia Mak, ANIP ‘02

Good luck to all current and future ANIP interns, and I encourage anyone with a passion for new experience and interest in public issues and service to apply.

‘The time I spent as an ANIP intern was the richest experience I had at university. Aside from the insights into the real workings of parliament and its committees, and the opportunity to work alongside experts, interact with politicians and think deeply about public policy issues, the best part was making new friends and the hours chatting with other interns from all around Australia. 

The access to senior people and responsibilities I was given as an ANIP intern in Parliament gave me the self-belief to be fearless in taking on opportunities that would be challenging personally and professionally – whether that be working as an advisor to the Government of Liberia, or helping to set up a medical response to the Ebola outbreak in 2014. Good luck to all current and future ANIP interns, and I encourage anyone with a passion for new experience and interest in public issues and service to apply.’
