One Heck of a Ride
Back in Seattle for his final quarter at SEFS, Ross Kirshenbaum spent the last year in Nicaragua as part of a study abroad internship. “It was a dream job,” he says. “Half the time I was in rural Nicaragua working with farmers, making compost, planting, sowing, weeding—very physical, manual work. The other half, I was in the office in Managua, developing partnerships with other organizations teaching organic agriculture, and developing a curriculum with an agronomist to organize workshops with farmers.” Read more about Kirshenbaum’s experience abroad, and see if you get inspired to take a similar plunge!
