Panama was such a wonderful experience.
I got a breath of fresh air since I hadn't travelled in over 5 years! I was definitely nervous at first, but I ended up travelling around the country and had the chance to meet so many people from all over the world. Since Panama has a tropical climate, I got to see so many green and natural spaces, which we don't get much here in Montreal. This trip was a personal achievement of mine and it encouraged me to strive for larger goals. I'm now open for international opportunities, whereas in U1 I refused to go anywhere farther Ottawa. I remember how Antoine from the Arts Internship Office kept encouraging me to apply to international internships, and next you know I accepted the offer for the World Food Programme in Panama City!
