As the World Peace Leadership Program came to a close this January, the IBREA Foundation hosted 7 Koreans for a two-week internship. All interns were passionate about learning how to make the world a better place while bettering themselves through our training program.
They were given many tasks during their time here. After attending multiple conferences in the United Nations, they were assigned to write reports of what happened during the conference and how it relates to IBREA’s own work. During these conferences and meetings, our interns were able to learn about NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations), especially the process of starting a project, maintaining it, and pushing for it to grow.
Each conference gave them insight on the issues that are happening around the world, and how IBREA Foundation can help address them. They were moved by how people want to work together to make the world a better place.
Our interns were also assigned to reflect and blog about their experiences about the internship, the United Nations as well as life in New York.
JinSol Lee said, “This helped me in two ways. First, I could connect my brain and body – which makes me stable and believe in myself. Second, I could see how mental health care will lead the healthcare industry in the US and the world.”
“It was a great opportunity for me to get to know about NGOs & the IBREA Foundation. It also makes me care more about the world poverty issues, as well as mental health which I realize can also be a way to obtain world peace” said MinSoh Sin, another intern with IBREA.
On top of written assignments, they were assigned to create a video promoting the IBREA Foundation for a Korean audience. They did so in a very creative way! If you want to watch the video, click HERE!
New York and the IBREA Foundation has given these individuals some amazing memories they will keep forever. We hope to see them back soon and wish them nothing but success in their future endeavors!
