She has recently submitted a research proposal that aims to explore the reporting of Syria's Civil War. In researching into the topic, along with voluntary experiences at Red Cross Charity shop and visiting villages in third world nations has greatly strengthened her ambitions to make a real difference in improving people's quality of life and she seeks fulfilment in contributing towards strengthening our communities. 

Rumina’s placement at EyeCheck is the perfect next step in fulfilling her goals.
