KIND WORDS FROM OUR INTERNS
TestimonialIt is everything I imagined. The feeling of having a project that is yours and yours alone is incredible.Six weeks in Bolivia has opened my eyes to the immense differences between people and cultures. We have spent time observing others but also reflecting on ourselves, who we are, and who we want to become.
TestimonialWorking at Moscoso Architecture taught me different strategies for developing structures while simultaneously respecting the environment. I discovered a passion and skill for designing sustainable projects and models. After this expereince I have a greater interest in EnvironmentalEngineering and making a difference in the natural world.
TestimonialEvery moment was filled with laughter and support, and I cannot imagine having the experience in any other way. It was inspiring to meet people who took their passions, fair trade, organic nutrition, or art and created a living. The experience has made me a stronger, more reflective, brighter individual, and I can’t wait to decide where my life will take me from here.
TestimonialAt Bolivia 4ward, we were entrusted with the responsibility of running seven blended learning programs in Bolivian high schools, implementing educational online platforms like Khan Academy to supplement existing mathematics curricula, while collecting data that demonstrated the success of blended learning to propose future expansions to the Government. Conducting such great work and being responsible for this program allowed me to grow personally and professionally.
