The time spent in Valencia has been amazing. The city is filled with culture, art, history and great scenery. Throughout my experiences in Valencia, I have been able to also build new relationships, enjoy new food and drinks, and enjoy exploring majority of locations Valencia has to offer for the public.
An interesting view is the outside and inside the Museo de L’Almoina in plaça de l’Almoina in the La Seu neighborhood in Valencia. The site is next to Plaza de la Virgen, where the Cathedral of Valencia is. The place is beautiful outside, where it holds lovely flowers and a fountain like- water flow outside.
Inside the building, held historic rocks, sculptures, and items dating back to early days of Valencia, including original rocks, path roads, bones, and other items of interest. The building really was interesting to see and exciting to learn about one of the historic marks in Spain since the old Roman time that is shown throughout Spain. Overall, historic sites like these are not only really interesting, but also beautiful to see in person and cherish each moment as it is your last time there. I am blessed to enjoy the moments here and really hope that I can return in the future and further explore Valencia and the rest of Spain. I hope everyone in the trip enjoyed the experiences as well and future study abroad students can enjoy this experience as well. Good luck!
My internship organization placement at United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has been really informational and interesting to spend time on working at during my time spent in Valencia, España. I was able to enjoy meeting my supervisors who were eager to work at the organization and work with me to discuss about the ongoing and current conflicts going on in the world today.
We spent majority of the time at the location doing activities on refugees and searching up information together. I have found a lot of information on refugees that I have not of known about before, such as current refugee statistics, where the organization works and what it does to help refugees, and how it can raise awareness of the current refugee crisis. The current general opinion on refugees is mixed, and the organization works on attempting to help change those opinions and gain support for their cause.
Overall, my time spent at the internship certainly helped me build professional and friendly relationships, experience Interning for the first time, especially as a foreigner, and helped me gain knowledge on the current refugee crisis. I hope in the future to return to Spain and explore more to the United Nations and the United Nations High commissioner for Refugee sites.
