Meet our new intern: Elisabeth Faber
We are delighted to welcome Elisabeth Faber as our new intern for the Fall semester 2022.
My name is Elisabeth Faber and this semester I will be the new intern at the Netherlands-Flemish Institute. This august I graduated from my LLM in Public International Law at the University of Groningen. Currently I am finishing my Masters in Middle Eastern Studies, but I didn’t want to graduate without some experience in the MENA region. This is why I am very happy to be at the NVIC. I have been in Cairo for a week now and I absolutely love it. It is a vibrant city that never sleeps, with chaotic traffic, different smells and sounds, and something exciting happening at every corner. I can’t wait to explore Cairo and Egypt and discover its culture, history and nature. As an intern at the NVIC, I want to gain professional experience, learn more about the institute and gain insight into research. I also get the chance to improve my Arabic skills, which will make living in Egypt even more valuable. I am especially looking forward to celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the institute and I hope to contribute to the festivities!
