I am currently still at school (senior in University) I am going to be interning thsi summer in Ecuador, but I still don't knwo yet what my placement is.  Everything is still very surreal for me, I have just 3 weeks left of school and am very busy with classes so it has been hard to let myself really think about my trip this summer because of all the other school stuff I have to do beforehand. I studied abroad for a semester in Mexico last year, while my host family was not so great the overall experience was wonderful! I really learned a lot of Spanish and I met my boyfriend there who is currently visiting from Mexico (his first time to the US!)  I am going to be graduate either in Dec. or next year and I really want to have some good experience to put on  my resume and to learn for to have some leadership skills in a career someday hopefully something philanthropic. 

I am pretty nervous because I know nothing about Ecuador, at least in Mexico I was pretty close to home and a lot of people spoke english. I do really want to improve my spanish especially since my boyfriend only speaks spanish and its hard when I can only understand him a quarter of the time!  I really wanted to go somewhere with a lot of poor because I want to be able to help people and to really understand their ways of living I think it will be uniquely different from mine. 

I really want to be able to research more before I go but right now I have so much schoolwork it is great to have something to look forward to though. I am very nervous but anticipating an adventure!
