GVI is an extraordinary organization the 6 weeks I was a part of the project in Greece were some of the best weeks of my life. The staff was the most caring people I have ever worked with. I found friends from all over the world that shared the same passions as me. The internship gave me endless opportunities from mastering skills in leadership to leading a morning survey. This internship will help me in future jobs because it taught me how to be a leader while teaching me more in depth about sea turtles and the marine environment. All of these skills will increase my experience in the marine biology field and qualify me better for a job in the future with marine conservation. During my time abroad with GVI I got to see many parts of Greece, get to know the locals, and save sea turtles. This was an opportunity of a lifetime and I wouldn’t have changed one minute of it. I absolutely loved every part of my GVI experience and would recommend anyone be a part of this organization. I wasn’t just a part of a project in Greece I became part of a family. I hope to see the world through GVI in future projects.
