Ask Me Anything! – International Development Week

This week (February 7 to 13) is International Development Week (#IDW2016).  This week is a time for those of us in development to have a conversation about the field we work in, and to share our stories with those in the general public.  This year, my roommate and colleague (Rebecca) and I have decided to do an AMA (which stands for Ask Me Anything – if you’re not a Reddit user).  Basically, we will devote the entire week to answering all of your questions about our work in development.  Since we’re currently on an IYIP (International Youth Internship Program) placement in Nepal (and formerly Bangladesh), we imagine that you’ll have a lot of questions about that.

You can ask your questions in a number of ways:

The more questions we get the better.  By asking a few questions each, we’ll be able to tell you all about our life here, and our various experiences.  Interested in food?  Great!  Want to know about our work placements?  Awesome!  Confused about the latest fashion trends in Nepal? No problem!

Let us know your burning questions, and we’ll spend all week replying!  All the answers will be posted on the site, so you can go back later and look through the videos, pictures, and responses.  Be sure to check out the responses to some other peoples’ questions too.  You can read more about IYIP, IDW, and who we are on our about page.

Hope to hear from you all! 🙂

P.S. Feel free to share this with others who you think might be interested!


About Amanda

Hi, I’m Amanda! Originally from Ottawa, Canada, I am currently living with my partner (Steve) in Sucre, Bolivia for the next year. I work in the unique space between industrial design and international development – but what does that even mean? I’m passionate about working WITH marginalized communities in a way that utilizes design to improve the lives of different types of people around the world. I have worked, studied, traveled, and researched on every continent (except Antarctica), and most recently I lived in Ghana, Bangladesh and Nepal. I love exploring new cultures and learning more about myself along the way.
