And the hunt is over! I’ve finally accepted an offer for an internship this fall semester in DC.
I am more than happy to say that I will be interning with Ashoka: Innovators for the Public at their Global Headquarters located in Arlington, VA!
I can already tell that this will be an experience of a lifetime and am so excited to continue on this path to becoming an effective change-maker. It will be very interesting to incorporate the practices of sustainable change to the semester theme of sustainability!
Until then, I am still finishing up my program with the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation in Costa Rica. Currently, I am working on a team to help raise money for construction of a community center to be used by the non-profit CEPIA. This larger center will be able to help provide space so that there can be a larger community outreach, whereas currently the organization struggles to operate in a small 3 bedroom home. If you want further information, you can learn more about what the organization does!
Aside from the work I have been doing so far, traveling and adventuring around Costa Rica has been great! Most recently, I’ve traveled to San Jose where I was able to experience the city life of Costa Rica. It’s not as busy as D.C. but it definitely is lively!
More blogging to come later! Next post will even have a video
