Winter Internship in World Youth Alliance Headquarters in New York City

As it is my first post I will introduce myself briefly šŸ™‚

My name is Kate and Iā€™m from Poland. I have been in WYA since fall 2006. I was doing my Track A training in the Krakow Chapter (greetings for them šŸ™‚). For a half of year I was a secretary of the chapter. In fall 2007, after finishing my studies, I went to Brussels to do an internship in the World Youth Alliance European Regional Office (special greetings for Magdalena šŸ˜€ ). And then here I am in New York City!

21st of January 2008. This is the date when all crazy things have started. I mean, my internship! šŸ™‚

After 2 months of the internship in Brussels I was expecting only good things from the internship in NYC. And as long as it is going I am not disappointed. Even more, I can say ā€“ it will be better!

Unfortunately, I am an extern. It means Iā€™m not living in the house with all other interns but still I hope we will have some time to get to know each other and become friends

I am working with interns: Aliah (Philippines); Irene (Kenya); Elise (Australia); Pat (USA)
Staff members: Kristen (USA); Cathy (Philippines); Maria (USA)
Directors: Shannon (Canada, Director for North America); Phil (England, International Director of Operations)
President: Mary (Canada)

Hope to read some posts from Brussels, I want to know what’s going on there šŸ™‚
