Spirits in the Advocacy Project office are high. The team of seventeen senior field consultants is prepared to depart to their respective locations in the next couple of weeks. Our mission: save the world. Ok, maybe not, but we are all excited to start our summer experience.
Right now, we are in a training session. It’s comforting to do a mental run-through and receive input before leaving; plus I am enjoying spending time with colleagues in a non-stressful environment. It will be awhile before I will be back in an English-speaking environment.
Speaking of English, it is during these times that I am struck by how important communication is to this internship: communicating with my host organization and community groups, capturing the situation in Guatemala in words, and transmitting the message. These are just a few of many challenges, but I am confident that it will inspire growth.
