Name: David Lazaro
From: United State of America
Internship: Global Internship Program in Amideast
I Chose Oman to take up an internship because I found the Middle East to be an attractive region as I studied it’s history in my university. When I found an internship with AIESEC Oman, I jumped at the chance to come here and explore the culture and region and when I got here I expected a hot desert climate with lots of dates and tea!
I am currently interning with AMIDEAST, based at the airport heights, but working in Sohar. I have really enjoyed my work so far with the company as well as their affiliates; the U.S. Embassy and the Ministry of Higher Education
I have learnt how to eat with my hands on the floor!. It has been a learning process for me in Oman; however, the learning curve is steep so I have been improving very quickly.
I have been in many countries but can say the Oman is a leader among them in hospitality. I very much enjoy meeting the people from all over the country and experiencing how excited and glad they are to share their Omani culture with me. “with friends from Sohar”
I know that with my students I have opened the doors in their minds to explore new things, ideas and places they didn’t know of before, hopefully they can use this knowledge for travel and the improvement of their adult lives.
