After graduating, she spent almost a year volunteering as an administrative assistant for an NGO HIV/AIDSclinic in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand.

While there, she met some reporters working for The Irrawady, a newspaper that covers what’s happening in Myanmar (then Burma) and is run by Burmese who are living in exile, and found their work very exciting.

Rauh ended up publishing a travel piece for them and was inspired to go into journalism as a career.
