As a kid I always dreamed about traveling the Amazon just like Jeff Corwin looking for exotic beasts. As a Freshman in college I got the opportunity I dreamed of while studying abroad in Guyana for ecology research. While there however, it wasn't the caiman that captivated my attention, it was the people. It was there that I saw firsthand how communities returned to the environment as a form of community development. This experience established my vocation and my work as a Master of Development Practice student at UMN. Wings of the Night helps unite my interest in biology and rural communities
Hi Yusi, thank you very much for the words of encouragement and support! I do have a strategic plan set up, including theory of change, action plan, etc. As far as presentation, I do have several different materials - when working directly with the Maijuna people as far as stakeholders, its best with in person action showing with models.
I have really enjoyed looking into Partner 17 and am excited to learn more on Wharton. I am currently doing some field work but will definitely reach out later! Take care!
