Prerana Kumar – India Intern

Date Commenced: 1st June 2012

My name is Prerana, and I come from a small village in the north east of India. I am enrolled in the European Master's in Tourism Management and have just finished my second semester in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

I have had varied work and study experiences in the past, however the one that led me towards sustainability and tourism is my experience at my farm in India. At the farm, I worked with school students and adults to familiarize them with the natural environment, community work and country living.

I joined SEA as a virtual intern and represent India. My motivations to participate in the intern-ship programme was to gain additional awareness about sustainability practises in my own country, which otherwise seem negligent on an everyday basis.
