I was really nervous before the Program. I was anxious about a lot of things: who I would meet, if I was prepared enough...
But in the end it all worked out very well. The staff was extremely welcoming and thorough in explaining what we would do but my placement also allowed me to give a lot of input and suggestions.
The most important thing is just to be open. My personal recommendation is to talk to everybody and get as much human experiences as possible. That will make your trip a very interesting experience and it will make you grow personnally as well.
My Program was only two weeks and it wasn't really enough to feel like I made a difference. It takes time to get into a routine and adapt to your work but take that time and ask questions.
All in all the trip was a personal challenge for me and an amazing experience. I met people who will stay with me my entire life and I want to thank them and the Projects Abroad staff for making that possible.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
