Ngoc Luu - Renewable Energy Development internship in Nicaragua

“I had a great time working in Nicaragua – researching and implementing technologies to improve the life of the people living in rural areas. I also raised awareness for sustainable living. This is truly a life changing experience and one that I would recommend to anyone who wants to gain some work experience along with life experience. Global Nomadic was also able to help me troubleshoot challenges as they aroused during my trip which I am very thankful for.

Aside from work, staying with my host family was a heartfelt experience. I was able to comprehend the difficulty of their lifestyle compared to mine and therefore learned to appreciate life much more. Regardless of the poverty that is evident where I had stayed the people are kind and would greet you with warm smiles wherever I went. There are a decent amount of time to travel and explore Nicaragua.”
