While working with databases and survey construction, the analytical skills that I learned in Quantitative Methods I and II were both very useful. Also, Public Policy Formation gave me the necessary tools to make suitable policy proposals and communicate them in an adequate way.
The main highlights of this internship were working together with other international organizations and learning about the same issue from different perspectives. I was in constant contact with different agencies of the United Nations, the InterAmerican Development Bank, and USAID, among others. I was also working with experts on the subject, and they included me in all their projects, events, and meetings from the beginning. I was really pleased to be put under the spotlight in several meetings because they valued my feedback and were interested in the ideas I could propose.
