First Post – Two Happy News

26 March 2011

As you might already know my name is Karin Johansson. I have studied Development studies at Uppsala university and I have strong interest for water issues, improved aid and sustainable development.

This week I received two for me extremely existing news that will make an impact on the rest of my life. At least I really hope they will.

The first is that I have been accept to an internship in India through AIESEC. The organization where I will do my internship is called WASMO (Water And Sanitation Management Organisation) and it is located in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. I will work with community awareness and mobilisation concerning drinking water and I will be there from the end of April to mid-August.

Just to mention it: AIESEC is an global student organization working with international internships and leadership development. I was active 2006-2010, first in in the local chapter in Uppsala and during the year of 2009/10 I held the position of Vice President of Exchange in the national board. So if you are interested in international internship possibilities and personal development  I definitely think it something for you to check out.

My second good news was that I have gotten accepted to the Master of Science that I have applied to. It is called Integrated Water Resources Management and given by SLU Uppsala. The reason that I have applied is that I felt that I need more specialized knowledge about water management to be able to work with water issues in developing countries as I want to.

So on this blog I will write posts about my experience in India and other things I find interesting.
