Intern January – March 2017
Hi I’m Eleanor and I am currently studying Economics and Politics at the University of Dundee. When not in lectures, I am a dedicated member of Dundee University Boat Club and sit on the committee as Treasurer. We are often up early to watch the sunrise, and use my time on the water as my mindfulness.
Home for me is in Berkshire, England, where I used to volunteer at the local Guide group and was a Sports Ambassador for my school. Voluntary work has been a part of family life since a young age so this opportunity to get a feel for what working in a charity is like really energises me.
Having been exposed to meditation through having a Hindu Father, I was excited to learn more from Karma Jiga and how the centre works in its entirety. I look forward to seeing how this Non-Profit organisation works and getting to grips with the day to day running of their classes, courses and coffee shop.
