“I went on the FASStrack Asia Summer Exchange program at the National University of Singapore where I studied a course on Human Trafficking in Southeast Asia. As part of this program I not only met amazing people from all around the world, I also undertook 10 days of field research in Thailand and Cambodia where I met with officials from the United Nations and the U.S. Embassy.” - UNSW Arts & Social Sciences student Ben Robbins.
