Debora Cortez-Miranda

SWASH Project Coordinator

My name is Debora, I am 22 years old. I am Portuguese but I study Environmental Chemistry in Montpellier, France.

I have always been very aware about environmental issues and I came to India to participate in a positive change. I also came to India to learn and experience a new culture and way of living. This internship has already brought me so much as I now understand all the aspects and challenges of Sustainable Development. What I find more exciting in this experience is that the NGO is mostly run by young leaders and interns. We are all collaborating to make EduCARE India grow everyday. I really enjoy having a broad vision of how everyone fits into the Organization and is participating in the positive change we are trying to create among the communities. It is important to create positive working dynamics in the team and make sure everyone is having a good experience, provide assistance and guidance to all Project Managers and make sure the whole team is working towards the same goal! I really want to improve communication among interns because I firmly believe we have so much to learn from each other.
