Previous interns share their experiences:    Nora Lin, (2017)                           

These past six weeks of my internship at Eden has been a great learning experience. From working directly with people with disabilities to leading camps for the visually impaired and teaching English to children of new immigrant parents, I have gained so much. I really enjoyed working directly at the disability centers. There was a wide range of people we got to work with, ranging from small children to the elderly and in between. Before this internship, I did not have any experience working with people with disabilities or visually impaired. I was a bit nervous coming into this internship because of my lack of experience, but after the first few days I became more comfortable. In the disability centers, I had conversations with the members and helped around the classrooms. We also had two camps at the end of the internship. During the two camps, we were able to meet other volunteers from different countries and Taiwanese volunteers as well. It was really great meeting people from Panama, Vietnam, and the US. The first camp was New Immigrant Camp where we taught American culture to the children. It was a short and sweet three days, but also very tiring. The second camp was teaching English to the visually impaired. Because the camp members were older and the camp was longer, we were able to establish relationships and connect more with them. Working with the visually impaired was really inspiring and motivating. Daily things such as eating, walking around, going to the bathroom, and reading are things that I don’t think about on a daily basis. For them, they need us to tell them what they are eating and lead them to wherever they want to go or if there is a step in front of them. Their attitudes were always so happy and willing to learn, it was really touching. I am more comfortable working with people with disabilities and the visually impaired. I’m really grateful for this opportunity to live in Taiwan and intern with Eden.
