Candidate Update:  Rachel N., Volunteer in Oaxaca

Rachel has just touched down in Oaxaca recently.  We recently caught up with her and she shared some insights on her experience thus far:

As I’ve come to learn in these 24+ hours, the advisories on the U.S. and Canadian websites, including their accompanying articles and the commentaries of many of its bloggers are disproportionate to the reality on the ground – or perhaps that is only in respect to Oaxaca (which lacked an advisory altogether).

In any case, I love everything here: my room, Sra. Irma y Octavio, the food and organic quality of its eggs and meats, etc.  Basically all is well.

In fact, in my first language class this morning, I have been moved up to an intermediary level, which was an enormous boost in morale.”

Testimonials

Beatrice R., Concordia University of Montreal

I’m sad that 2 months have gone by so fast, but all worth it for the experience I’ve had making new friends and exploring a career field of interest. As an art history and anthropology student from Canada, I had the opportunity to work at the archeological site of Atzompa not far outside of town and even come into close contact with archeological pieces dating back to hundreds of years. I’m really happy to have invested my time with Adelante and working very hard in order to achieve this long-lasting dream. Best luck to all future volunteers and intern takers who decide to come to this beautiful place. Te quiero mucho, Oaxaca!

Beatrice R., Concordia University of MontrealMontreal, CAN
Megan C., Northeastern University,

The experience was most definitely worthwhile. I gained an understanding of an entire new culture and language – Catalan – and became passionate about a new cause – Catalan independence – that I previously knew nothing about. The experience opened my eyes to how important cultural exchange is, as my interaction with Catalans in Barcelona furthered my understanding of their situation more and more each day. Certainly this learning experience is incomparable to anything I could have gotten in a classroom.
