Young Director September 2017- Present
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.

Kristóf T. Nemes – University of Dundee
Hi, my name is Kristóf, I am from Hungary and I am currently a 2nd year student at the University of Dundee, where I study Economics and International Relations. I have always set myself high standards and that is no different in work – I am always looking for new experience and to either improve my skills or acquire new ones. I consider myself to be a hardworking, reliable and motivated person who is always looking for new challenges to face.
In my work, I try to be as professional as possible but not in my free time, which I mostly enjoy spending together with my friends. Sport and health also form a great part of my life, I try to lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle. I have also been playing football since I can remember and now I am a member of the University of Dundee Futsal Club, which currently competes in the local league in Dundee. I am also interested in languages; apart from my mother tongue, Hungarian, I am fluent in English and Spanish and would also like to learn another one. I definitely feel like language learning has helped me further improve my communication and logical thinking skills.
I applied for an internship here because I want to learn a lot. I was interested in how Nilupul Organisation works as a charity and also finding out more about how to successfully maintain a non-profit organisation. I hope my time here will be a success and I can acquire valuable experience from working here.
Hi, my name is Lisa and I am currently in my second year at the University of Dundee, studying psychology. I really enjoy playing hockey and I am part of Dundee University Ladies Hockey Club, where we play very often and sit in various different leagues across the UK. As a result of being a member I have grown more confidence and love working in a team.
I am from Glasgow but chose Dundee as I thought it seemed like a lively city with friendly people…I was not wrong! I also love to socialise and enjoy going to the cinema or out for dinner with my friends. I have been learning German for a while and would like to one day become fluent.
I love learning new things and when the opportunity to apply for an internship came up I was thrilled. I applied to Nilupul because I was interested to see how the organisation worked and how it was run. I am a hard-working person and always put in full effort into every task. I am sure that the time spent here at Nilupul will be a great experience and I look forward to seeing how I will adapt to a new environment at the charity.
