Week 3 – Santiago

Growth. Uncertain. Introspective. Heavy. Disconnected. Grateful. Proud.

Week three in Santiago had me feeling more involved with the Sistema B team. Unfortunately I resorted back to speaking some English, but I felt content with the “Spanglish” we were using for the most effective communication. The impact measurement project was still a bit hard to define, but I felt I was contributing to the daily operations of the organization. The cultural differences were challenging and I felt uncertain of my role, but I continued to keep learning and stay proactive.

I spent a lot of time alone this week. I hiked a couple of times up to the San Cristobal hill, which has an incredible view of the city. I also spent time working on my other projects and talking with my family. I felt like I’d grown a lot in my first three weeks and continued to do so each day.
