"The internship has truly transformed my idea of the Ministry. Whilst I understood that the MFA was important in handling issues relating to Singapore’s diplomacy, I learnt that the MFA actually does much more. The MFA handles a myriad of tasks, ranging from providing consular services to Singaporeans in distress, to fighting for Singapore’s interests at the UN General Assembly. I was able to better understand the sacrifices made by the FSOs as well.”
