From 01/04/2010 to 04/06/2010

Nepal is a country that has always fascinated me. I chose this country for my internship journalism and found a placement with VIN . Because I’m a student journalism, it was also a relevant choice as Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and politically unstable. But after my experience I came to notice that Nepal is a very fascinating an rich country because all the people are just amazing.

I spent 10 weeks working with VIN making documentaries. While I was here learn more about how VIN’s health program and I also made a volunteers video.

My host family an VIN’s staff were all so hospitable and during our free time we went walking, or shall I say climbing, through the community, talking and drinking tea with the members. I loved living in Tinpiple!

Internship with VIN is a so much more then being a tourist in Nepal. Living with my host family, to live with Sailadai, and to really experience the culture of Nepal!

In Nepal I’ve made lifelong friends that I know I can visit when I come back to Nepal. And I will never forget the enthusiasm of the members of VIN is inspirational.

Thank you
