I had an incredible summer where I learned more about the issues I’m interested in, networked with professionals from the UN, WTO, and international NGOs, and met a fantastic group of people.
In only six hours, the tropical depression had become a full blown typhoon. I watched from my window into the early hours of the morning. Below me was a ghost town, not a car or person in sight, the trees looking small and helpless from the 8th floor as they whipped violently about. The steady waves of wind and water were illuminated by the streetlights, and I was lulled to sleep.
