What is your favorite travel memory?
My favorite travel memory is when my husband and I trekked to Qoyllority mountain with a group of volunteers to immerse in an ancient Peruvian pilgrimage. The adventure itself was a life changing experience for many of us.
What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?
As a local partner from Volunteering Solutions I can say that we have a fair, democratic and flexible interaction with our headquarters. The policies and processes of services are well defined by the company, in this way we can meet or exceed the expectations of volunteers and interns.
How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?
I have enriched my cultural horizons interacting with volunteers and interns from different continents and backgrounds. Besides that, I have developed more self confidence to embrace big challenges in my life.
What unique qualities does your company possess?
Trust, delegation, commitment and responsibility in their local partners.
Describe a time when you felt especially proud to be part of your current team.
I felt really proud to be part of Volunteering Solutions team when PRONOEIs (Peruvian rural kindergartens) achieved their annual goals with the support of our volunteers. Volunteerism plays a very important role in my community for social and human development.
What is the best story you've heard from a return student?
A returning student that had come in a group year ago told me that a girl, who was member of that past group, has become a social entrepreneur. She has a company that delivers high quality glasses to under developed countries at very affordable prices to improve their life.
