“The United Nations Development Programme provided a very diverse and stimulating atmosphere to work in. I was afraid of becoming part of an international team devoted to improving the lives of the people that live in the Dominican Republic. The UNDP is very active and has a disaster preparation division, which I am working for. They have been very accommodating with regard to my limitations with the Spanish language and my desire to integrate myself quickly in the organization. Since I’ve arrived, I have been able to work independently, although, clearly in a guided manner. My work here benefited both my career and the program.”
The blog also provides useful information for students and inspires lively debate and increased interest in exchange and the development of Hispaniola.
