Star Anise welcomed the arrival of two summer interns to its business across May and early June.

Kithir Mohamed Hallaji Abdul Gaffar ('Hallaji') and Nazahat-Riaz ('Naz') joined the Hong Kong-based legal and compliance recruitment firm, respectively as Marketing, Research and Administrative Interns, through the Zubin Foundation EMerging Talent Internship Project.

At the time of the internship, Hallaji had just completed his penultimate year of BBA Strategy & International Management studies at The City University of Hong Kong. During his time in university, he joined AIESEC and becamse the Manager of Outgoing Global Talent (oGT). Separately, he has provided both academic and sports tutoring in his spare time.

Given her passion is in digital marketing and her prior internship experiences included working as a marketing intern at an international law firm. She has also worked as a project and communications intern, financial consultant, and office administration clerk in various companies.

Speaking of their time as interns at the company, co-Managing Director, Annie Tang, said, "It has been a delight to have Hallaji and Naz join Star Anise as interns. They have both showcased their adaptability and efficiency during their time assisting our marketing and research teams at Star Anise. They have also shown high levels of initiative and efficiency as well as remarkably high-quality work in their brief time with us. They definitely have bright futures ahead of them and we wish them all the best as they pursue their respective career goals."

This is Star Anise’s first year in participating in the Zubin Foundation EMerging Talent Internship Project as a Company Host. Diversity and inclusion continues to be at the forefront of Star Anise’s values and this was a great way for the company to contribute to opening up more working and learning opportunities for ethnic minority students.
