Joanna’s Unforgettable Remote Internship Experiences!
Joanna Georgiou from Princeton University had fruitfully completed her remote internship in the field of environmental sustainability. Her summer internship at a Vietnamese environment NGO had left her memorable moments not only in professional work with local host but also with the local buddies that she met in cultural exchange activities at ABROADER.
Below is a repost from her facebook post sharing about her journey doing the remote internship in Vietnam:
“I hope everyone has been well and staying safe during these difficult times.
As summer is quickly ending, I wanted to share about a unique experience I've had. Through the organization ABROADER, I was able to do a remote internship with GreenID, an environmental NPO in Hanoi, Vietnam, while also participating in weekly culture sessions and buddy chats with Vietnamese university students. I really enjoyed my projects throughout the internship at GreenID Vietnam, as I worked on proposals for Hanoi's downtown district, Hoan Kiem, for both their Clean Air Day Campaign and measures to mitigate air pollution in the area, and also conducted virtual classes with fellow interns on environmental sustainability to local Vietnamese middle schoolers. (here is an article GreenID published on their website about the lessons: http://en.greenidvietnam.org.vn/04-online-discussions-between-green-star-club-members-and-american-students.html)
ABROADER has a lot of different work or study opportunities for foreigners in Vietnam, including more remote internships, so I encourage you to check out their website: https://abroader.org/! The experience was really worthwhile, I highly recommend!
