It was for me my first internship abroad but also my first experience in tourism. I arrived with apprehension and fears, but the team immediately helped to feel at ease. Thanks to this internship, I was able to discover how office work is but also the fieldwork with motivated and involved local interlocutors. I am now enriched by a real professional experience but also human. Indeed, I met people of all nationalities who shared my values. I shared with them moments that I will not forget like for example going out together in one of the most beautiful places in the region of Riberalta. This moment is a precious memory for me. In addition, I also discovered life as a Bolivian, as for example being on a motorcycle without a helmet, which for me was a new experience. It's an experience maybe common for some but for me, who drives a motorcycle in France and never consider taking the road without equipment, it still fills me with shivers of excitement. I would highly recommend this experience as an intern with Sustainable Bolivia in Riberalta because I keep a fabulous memory of it.
What would you improve about this program?
In a short time, I think the little problems encountered will be quickly settled. It's just a matter of adaptation to a new environment.
