Volunteer Name:Kiara F.
Project Attended:Ecuador Remote Internship - Land Development


“I am really happy with my placement. I am doing a lot of hard work and am finding connections to my own career path and future goals. Be prepared for challenges but don’t be scared away from them. I think doing things virtually means one has to be much more intentional about meeting people and asking questions so that you get the most out of the experience.”

“I really liked meeting new people whether that was through the buddy program, the cultural meetings or office meetings. I feel like that is the best way to learn more about Ecuador and I really appreciated developing long lasting relationships. I also really liked the work I was doing with my local organization. It has shaped how I see my future within the architecture and urban planning fields.”
