I am Shiori, one of the new interns at Andaman Discoveries. I joined the team at the beginning of February, and I will be here for another 5 months. It is unbelievable how fast my days have gone by since arriving here. It’s been great fun and I am enjoying working with the team and with the community projects.
This internship is part of my bachelor degree of International Tourism and Consultancy at NHTV in the Netherlands. I chose to come here because I’ve been interested in working on Community-Based Tourism and such projects for the last few years, Andaman Discoveries is working on projects which I’ve been keen to be involved with.
I am in charge of client communications and coordinating volunteers who come to help our projects. I am also here to do destination research for my study. I do hope to be able to contribute my experiences and knowledge gained from my studies and gain more experiences and expand my network during my stay.
If you have not been to Thailand or the Andaman region, I do recommend you visit us and explore this beautiful and exotic area!
My colleague, Jennifer who is working on our Newsletter and social media up-dates, will keep you posted about us, our volunteers and guests and of course our projects!
