I'm very grateful that I signed up for this amazing course. It taught me so much such as the social systems and the support everyone had for each other. I admire the strong and beautiful community of Tanzania and how everyone was willing to help each other no matter what. I'm happy knowing that there are such centers and people who choose to help others. This makes me want to help and take part in the future. I certainly want to visit Tanzania.
This internship is helping me get closer to my long term goals because it is allowing me to work with a different culture, which is what many social workers do. It is teaching me to adapt to new ways of learning. It is opening my eyes to the world of social work and what to expect when I enter the field. The skills I have learnt so far include how to write a professional email, manage my time effectively and immerse myself in someone else’s world that is different to mine.
Since the pandemic made it difficult to travel overseas during the summer, I decided to do an online internship. I did the Social Work internship out of Tanzania. I was placed in a community center that worked mainly with kids and I got to communicate with children, their families, and their teachers. My supervisors were very insightful and helpful along my experience. I learned that I enjoy meeting and interviewing different people and families and helping them on how they might overcome the problems they are facing.
