I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to participate in this internship through the GESI program and FSD. I’ve learned a lot about community based development practices and allowed me to get some first hand experience in carrying out a community-based and community-sourced project. I think this experience has definitely solidified my desire to continue in similarly focused work upon my graduation and I look forward to being able to look back on my experiences in this internship as a source of information and lessons to draw upon. I’m also so grateful for the team at FSD and the way they’ve taken such great care of us. I’m very appreciative of their both visible and invisible support, encouragement, and guidance throughout the course of the program. I feel like I’ve said this a lot in my reports, but everything I have experienced virtually has made me want to experience everything in person all the more.
