Hi, everyone! I’m Kathleen Magramo, an incoming third year student studying Politics and Public Administration in HKU and I will be interning at APMM for two months. In my time at APMM, I hope to conduct research that would influence policymaking and the media in advocating for a better work environment for migrant workers.
As a Filipina born and raised in Hong Kong, I embrace both cultures by making friends with Filipinos and locals in school an din different societies. I believe that safety net woven of rights empowerment, legal assistance and sense of community is pivotal to the multi-faceted problems migrant workers may face.
Aside from work, a fun fact about myself is that I can also speak, Cantonese, Mandarin and Tagalog fluently. I’m also learning Spanish just for fun. I also love to dance so I’m looking forward to learning traditional Filipino dances with the migrant workers at Chater Road every Sunday.
