My name is Loryeve, I am a currently a third year student at Ottawa University. I am a student in conflict studies and human rights program with a minor in social work. In a few months, I will be flying to Vietnam for the summer to volunteer as an program assistant for the Center for sustainable rural development. This NGO is working with disadvantaged communities in mountainous areas, assisting them to improve their quality of life and manage their resources sustainably.

Through this internship I want to step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself. It is also a great opportunity to gain professional experience and to see if working in the international development is for me.

It will be an adventure of a life time for sure :)
