Experience

I wake up 6:00 am every morning and sometimes 4:00 am for field measurements. It is fun to wake up very early in the morning to play a role in saving the world indirectly. I made soo many friends during my internship both younger and older friends. I visited soo many countries with IAESTE organised trips and personal trips also. The food I usually eat during my internship is pasta and sometimes rice with vegetable or meat source.

Discover

During my internship I discovered some new talents about myself, some things I am not really good at doing and I also I discovered where my interest in education is. It has also motivated me to continue with my masters program right after my bachelors program.
