I worked as a finance associate for a small cooking stove company in India.
I proceeded to ask the waiter what types of tea they had and he said “only lemon”.
Although I had green tea (hot) in mind I settled for what was available.
I am excited about being able to work with a community and build upon the mindset that many Nicaraguans already possess. all I can say is that I choose all the wrong colors and in general had a lot to learn about condoms during training. Realistically verb tenses, but funniest “mistake” was using vos with my host sister’s boyfriend…
not really sure why my host mom thought it was hilarious, but I just went with it. I am hoping to make amazing connections with people!
What is something you have done in Nicaragua that you never thought you would do? I generally feel like the people of Nicaragua are very amiable. In my training town, seemingly every family has a business of some sort. What do you anticipate to be your greatest challenge? Probably Spanish, but every day it gets easier and easier. During our technical training on creating materials, we were given coloring sheets to work on.
Swimming in a volcanic lake at the Laguna de Apoyo! One of the goals of the EEP program is to get students and business owners to think about innovation in business but many Nicaraguans already hold the entrepreneurial mindset. Dating is not a priority of mine but I am open to organic relationships that may potentially form. I miss my family and the availability of a diverse array of food. I was coloring away and completely oblivious that my picture was one of the condom steps until Dina pointed that out…
I almost missed my stop because I was asking the men if they were getting out, instead of saying I wanted to leave! I hope to excite teachers and students about the topic of entrepreneurship.
I want to share a different story of Americans from my lens.
The challenge is fighting nature to achieve the goals of the EEP program.
