Dear friends around the world,

Happy Easter!

This summer I've been given the opportunity to work an in-person internship with the World Youth Alliance (WYA), a youth-run organization that works with the United Nations and the European Union, advocating for various human rights issues. (

I was accepted to do an internship with their Europe Regional Office, and so from May 21st to July 30th I will be in Brussels, Belgium, working as an Advocacy Intern and getting my first experience of international relations and diplomacy! I'm hoping to raise enough to cover travel costs and food expenses for the two and a half months I'll be there.

As a little perk for donors, I've been given permission to write a bi-weekly blog while I'm in Belgium about what I'm doing, from online work to international travel to French courses, which will go out to everyone who donates. 

Thank you for your friendship, your generosity, and for helping me take the first step in this crazy career dream of mine!

Marietta :)
