I am delighted to be working with the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Horizonte Corporativo in Ica, Peru as an Environmental Officer. I am undertaking this seven month international placement in my final year (4th) to fulfill the requirements for the International Development program at the University of Waterloo. I am passionate about all themes relating to environmental conservation and ecological restoration while simultaneously promoting the capacities of local communities. Being able to put my Spanish to use has also been an incredible experience. I am delighted to work with Horizonte Corporativo as they are tremendous in addressing such themes in the region as it pertains to waste management, ecological restoration and organic agriculture. The best part about it? I get to work with students of all ages and together, we are creating a more sustainable future for all. Welcome to my blog!
