Alhamdulillah Indah keterima untuk magang Houses of Parliament UK alias Palace of Westminster alias “Big Ben”! I will intern specifically at the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association UK, starting from next week for International Parliamentary Conference “The Growth for Development: The Role of Parliamentarians in Managing Economic Growth for Equitable Development”. I will be with my fellows from Development Administration and Planning, University College London, Najah Almujahed (Yaman), Obaa Akua (Ghana), Chelsea Morell (US), Dolly Begum (Canada), and Sheena Li (Canada).
Inget dua bulan lalu, Indah pikir bisa dapat akses langsung masuk ke Westminster Hall sebagai visitor saat London Open House udah luar biasa. Waktu itu Indah ikut tur ke Chapel of St Mary Undercroft, Jubilee Room, sampai minta izin solat di salah satu ruangan kosong. Hahaha.. But working there?! That is beyond expectation.. I keep saying, “Alhamdulillah… Alhamdulillah…”
The thing is, meskipun akan magang sebentar, kita jadi punya akses untuk ke berbagai meeting parlemen Inggris ataupun Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, termasuk Prime Minister Question. There will be a lot going on from now until next year, not to mention the General Election!
Now, it is my responsibility to get the most of it, growing contacts, learning first-hand from the expert, and of course learning for the best of Indonesia when I return. 🙂
