An amazing team that will make sure you live the best cultural experience

I was part of the Awaken family for 4 months. I had an amazing experience, both with the team that always helped me out or cheered me up when participating to the development of Awaken than with the Ecuadorian.
As a business developer, I was in charge of the social media of Awake. I was always free to share my ideas and free my creativity. Which made it interesting to grow and learn by myself.
What made me love Awaken even more is the human side of the business. Working closely with associations, we had the chance to help people in need beside work.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?

As a national plate, I tried the guinea pig! A must to do if you like trying cultural food

A real Human and Professional experience

This intership was a real value added for my carrier ! The flexibility of the missions given and the company in general allowed me to have an unique experience according to what I was looking for. The structure of the company is a reflect of what we are more and more finding in new companies in terms of managing.

Moreover, the company helped me to perceive all the facets of the country, allow me to face some realities about some social challenges.

The kindness of the people there really made my travel.

It was a real chance !

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I've accidentally fished a snake which was stronger than me and the boat where I was in.
