My first week here at UNEP CAR/RCU flew by very fast. It has been quite an informative week. I spent my first two days getting oriented with my coworkers, developing a routine and getting familiar with the literature and projects that I will be working on within the AMEP Sub-programme.
It has now been a month since I commenced my internship. In the past month I have worked on a number of interesting projects, attended project design meetings and a symposium and participated in teleconferences. I have also spent a large part of the month working on a report on national water classification for the LBS Working Group, editing and updating fact sheets and drafting communication outputs.
I cannot believe I am already halfway through my internship! Since my last blog post I have been kept busy working to support a variety of initiatives including, communication and awareness activities for commemorative days and events, updating the country information database, reviewing technical reports and fact sheets among other assigned tasks.
I am already three months in!! Not much has changed regarding the tasks that I have been given to work on since my last blog; however I am thrilled to have and share office with our new intern, who joined the team on July 15, 2015!
Whew!Time has flown by so fast! I am literally a couple of weeks away from completing my internship! But as it moves closer to the end, I have been feeling bittersweet.
