If someone would have told me that I was about to live the best experience of my life I would have laughed. But that was exactly what happened.
I was working in a company for three and a half years, at first official job, and I suddenly felt that I needed a radical change in my life. I wanted to do more for the people so I quit my job and found Humanitarian Affairs, which opened my eyes to a diverse world in need.
The internship was only a three-month experience but it was enough to allow me to experience joy, awareness, dedication and commitment. I laughed, cried, learned, helped and grew a little bit more every day. Humanitarian Affairs does not only do good for people in need but it teaches you how to be more prepared in life and in the business world.
I learned how to be more professional, acquired written and oral communication skills, and understood the meaning of “be kind but be fierce”. This is our world and we are needed now more than ever before.
Humanitarian Affairs taught me the meaning of values, long-lasting experiences and wisdom. It also gave me many useful tools to light the flame within me, and to be the change I wanted to see in the world. I am a changemaker. A young, proactive and empowered young leader.
Magical: This is the one word I would use to sum up my internship. It opened my eyes, brain and heart, and I have no words to express my gratitude. Mr Kim, Janice, you are unbelievable.
