My Experience in SIHMA
Licia Calcagno lived in the US for a few years and then moved to the UK where she studied Geography at the University of Hull. She recently graduated from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark with a Master’s in Advanced Migration Studies. She wrote her Master’s thesis on the experience of Somali women traveling to South Africa. Through human geography and gender theories she analyzed the journey of female Somali migrants. She was an intern for SIHMA from August 2018 to February 2019 where she had the opportunity to learn about migratory realities and movements within Africa and South Africa.
