With barely a week left, our humble group of four UT students are prepared to take on the coastal villages of Odisha. We have been prepping for this internship for the past five months. We learned bits of Telegu, interacted with one another, and practiced various teaching methods. I am very confident in the abilities of each and every one of our interns; they all have something unique and uplifting to bring to the group. I only hope that things run smoothly, and that we interact with the villagers well. I hope to conduct daily meetings that will take place at the convent by the end of the day. In those meetings, we can discuss what went right, what went wrong, what we can repeat tomorrow, and what we can improve on for the future. I think these meetings will not only be beneficial for the project, but will also be beneficial for the development of the group dynamic.
I know that I will be a bit disoriented from the traveling and the new climate, so I hope that I adapt quickly. I am both excited and nervous, because I want to be of assistance– both to my interns and to those in Gopalpur and Markandi.
We have done everything to train for the next six weeks, now it is just a matter of applying what we have learned.
Send us your good thoughts!
Over and out,
