When applying for the Steve Hicks School master’s program, Madison Bridges (MSSW ’19) knew she was drawn to clinical social work. She was also intrigued about the opportunity to complete her final field internship in New Zealand.
Bridges loved everything about her international internship: the opportunity to be immersed in a new country, the student population, and most of all, the support and camaraderie among team members at Counseling and Health Services of Victoria University, in Wellington.
When a permanent counselor position opened, she didn’t hesitate to apply and was ecstatic to found out she was hired. In her new position, Bridges is looking forward to further developing her identity as a clinician, learning more about New Zealand’s Maori culture, and continuing her work with students at Counselling and Health Services.
