Nelline studied International Relations in Groningen and Colombia and is now in her Master Programme International Development Studies at the Wageningen University. Her specialization is “Technology, Communication and Policy”. She also participated in a masterclass Politics and International Development Cooperation at a Dutch NGO, for which she traveled to Uganda to witness the social and economic effects of policy in practice. An internship with Sinzer for her is an ideal opportunity to (learn) to measure these observed effects. In her leisure time Nelline loves to cook for and with friends, while enjoying a good glass of wine. She also loves to drive a boat, ski and hike.
