Becoming deeply involved with SCI

A Long-term Volunteer Story By Morgana Jolin-Thomas

Becoming so deeply involved with SCI wasn’t what I planned. I had just spent four years at university studying Economics, specialising in international economic relations so my brain was full, to the point of exploding, with the hard realities of global politics and power. I had begun my studies full of enthusiasm; I had this huge feeling inside me that with just a little bit of effort, I could solve the world’s problems. I soon became immersed in a world of economic theory, profit motives, multinational corporations and conflicts over resources. Hundreds of years of history put the state of the modern world into context. I came to realise that I wasn’t the first person to have the bright idea to try and sort out this mess.
