My experience studying abroad in Spain:

One of the reasons I was excited to go to Spain for the year was to experience having an internship in a Spanish workplace. I was able to work for a non profit organization that helps women. I have always been interested in working for a non profit, and through this organization I was able to see how one functions. The organization is called Fundaci√≥n Mujeres. I was able to help the foundation, and be a part of a group of workers. I went out with them for coffee or lunch multiple times. The people that work in the foundation are more like a family than a group of workers.
