This week at the World Affairs Council was my last week and it consisted of a hodge-podge of things to finish out my projects. I spent the majority of the week getting the archived files all organized and ready to put in storage. The week before I worked on getting the files organized and into the acid-free folders, but this week was about putting them into the final boxes. I had to double-check all the boxes to make sure the files were all there and that they were properly done. I also had to get the archive index all squared away and ready so that future personal can find the files easily. It felt so nice to complete the archive project that I had been working on for the entire time I have been at the World Affairs Council. I spent the rest of my office time working on proposals and events calendars. I worked on two proposals for up coming projects and both pulled resources off the internet and grabbed them off past projects. It is so much fun to see the resources we have in Portland and how they can work into projects for visitors. I also worked on events calendars for the next year. The events calendar was fun to work on because it is what the council uses to show the national program what is going on in our area at the time a visitor could be visiting. I worked on both the summer, fall and winter calendars and I now know a lot more of what Portland has to offer so I think I will end up going to a lot of these events. It was super cool to be able to work on all these documents that will be sent around and used for real purposes. Working on these documents felt a lot more rewording then say an English essay because it will actually be useful and have a life span past my desk. I also went and sat in on a meeting at Mercy Corps that the Tajikistan visitors were going on. My mentor thought it would be fun to sneak me in there for a morning so I could see their work. It was really interesting to hear about Mercy Corps work and how they interacted with the visitors. Although I enjoyed being there for the morning, I am happy that things worked out the way they did because if not I would not have had such a fantastic project at WAC. This week I also went out to lunch with Amy and we discussed her career and the advice she would give someone interested in international relations type career. It was fantastic to speak with her and get some great advice about different things to do to build a resume and make connections. All in all I had a fantastic time at WAC and I am absolutely sure I want to pursue a major in International Relations. It was an amazing experience and I am glad it was at WAC!
