My name is Deborah Herz and I am currently studying International Tourism Management in Germany in my third year. I enjoy living in natural, peaceful places and love to try out all kinds of outdoor sports like bicycling, hiking, climbing or diving. I have been living in Southern Thailand for already two years and I can definitely say that this beautiful country with its very welcoming and friendly people has already become my second home. Due to my love for nature and the local culture I am looking for a way to combine social and environmental sustainability in my professional carrier as well and I was very happy to find out about the great work of Andaman Discoveries in the Northern Andaman Region.
Therefore, I am going to be an intern at the office of AD for the coming six months and try to learn as much as I can about the management strategies and the organisation of a social enterprise and the collaboration with the local villages, schools and ethnic minorities.
