I believe that an essential function of public service is to ensure access to human rights. My work on aid efforts has developed my desire to the promote human rights both domestic and abroad. I worked on youth empowerment and educational program implementation, as well as facilitating the implementation of a waste management system in rural Peru. I also developed a program for installing improved cooking stoves. The job entailed working with youth and parents to assess the need for community projects, then implementing a system that accurately educated the population on the benefits, which then allowed for the process of installation and maintenance. The primary goal was to empower youth with the opportunity to work on a health project that benefits themselves and the community. My duties also included developing a curriculum by taking into account experiences and community feedback for future projects.
