Professional Qualifications

- As a social worker I am good at talking to people, and to the administration. My Master’s degree means that I have the professional qualifications to implement projects in a good way, Ida points out.


Ida has been involved with the theatre in her leisure time. The way from theatre to film is short and Ida’s interest is very positive for MediaLT’s heavy involvement in audio description work.

 Fun to write a thesis

- I thought it was almost geeky fun to write a thesis, and not everyone is lucky enough to be able to carry on with research afterwards. So this is a great opportunity and I hope to do a good job, says Ida.
