- I came here to overcome all of the prejudice about Colombia and at the same time to challenge my cultural sensitivity
- I have been learning Spanish and discovering the beauty of a Latin American country
- I feel that I have contributed to education in a third world country
Yeah, my parents worried a lot when they heard about my decision. However, I wanted to challenge all of the prejudice that exists about Colombia. I have already spent 11 months teaching kids and adolescents English, learning Spanish, visiting beautiful places which look like paradise, dancing salsa, eating exotic fruit and drinking world famous coffee. I have also been writing about my experience on my blog to let Slovak speaking world know that there was not a reason to worry. At the same time, I have had several opportunities to do a presentation about Slovakia.
I am happy that the aim of the project came true.
This great Colombian experience has encouraged me to look for another opportunity with AIESEC internship. Let's see what will be the next...
