Maureen's Trip with Proyecto Peru

Organized by: Maureen McGowan

THE STORY:

I have been fortunate enough to have received an internship position through Proyecto Peru and would love your help to reach my goals! I will be interning as a Doctor's Assistant in Cusco at a clinic for unemployed citizens, where I will be shadowing nurses, learning basic nursing skills, and helping with community health projects :) 

As many of you know, I will be graduating from UMBC this December and have been busily looking for ways to incoporate many of my passions in my gap year. This internship is an incredible opportunity because it ties together my love for travel, my passion for volunteer work, desire to learn a new language, and hope to gain skills in a new career field;nursing. 

If you are able to, any amount of donation would be very appreciated! I hope to raise about $1,300 to cover my flight to Peru, Housing, and Spanish Courses. The program luckily is cost-free but I do need help covering additional fees, especially because I will be in Peru for 2 months! (I am renting an apartment from January 8th-March 11th to be exact!) Any support would be very much appreciated because I am very passionate about helping people in developing countries while also becoming familiar with nursing, but do need help getting there. Over the past year at UMBC I have researched Health Psychology and have focused on prenatal care, HIV prevention, and smoking cessation. I have recently become interested in hands-on health and am therefore very excited to have the opportunity to gain nursing experience. 

Thank you so much in advance
