My internship with Wecyclers was an incredible experience that allowed me to develop my professional skills while concurrently learning about a new culture. Working with a start-up in the most populous city in all of Africa really expanded my mindset of what is possible in the business world in "developing countries."
I was able to work directly with the CEO of this recycling company to help reduce poverty in poor areas of Nigeria while at the same time improve the environmental conditions of some highly-polluted areas.
Working in the field of social entrepreneurship was like working nowhere else. The passion of all my co-workers was truly awe-inspiring. They motivated me to work as hard as they did every day and to really make the world a better place. This is hands-down the best internship experience I have had in my life.
