The Research of anti-racist and intersectional pedagogies would permitted me to think of other ways of changing the social world in which distraught communities in Madrid would have to be live. The world is always changing and frequently times pushing people to fit into a shape, those who don’t fit what is regarded as ordinary are frequently time ostracized. In any case, I accept it is our work to form unused spaces, so individuals ended up more comfortable. With these things in mind, I knew this internship would set up my individual way to development in both my instructive and proficient career in the near future. An internship with Esther Mayoko-Ortega as research assistant was the culminate fit for me. Brandon Solis, Skidmore. Spring 2020
For this internship, we focused on people of color in Madrid and the program center. There were two projects that we were involved with. The first one was conducting research and outreach to non-profit organizations in Madrid that provided a safe space for people of color. The second project involved doing a survey for students of color in the program. Both projects were created to find resources for students of color that they can have an environment inside the program center and outside, so they can feel safe. In all, the internship contributed to my experience in Spain because I was able to learn about the culture that resides in Spain. Most importantly, I was able to investigate what resources there were for people of color and how these resources were used and advertised.  Jordana Suriel, Skidmore. Spring 2020
My intercultural experience doing the internship was great. Because I was in a different country in which the primary language of instruction wasn’t English it was very interesting. For my internship, I wasn’t accustomed to discussing sociological concepts and themes in Spanish and although I’m a heritage speaker it was often a little difficult for me to communicate as fluently about these topics as I would in English. It made me recognize even the way people communicate in that country differs from where I’m from. Their rituals and routines are different. The way they interact socially differs. But the intercultural experience taught me to consider alternatives to the way things are currently done, and they see objects, people, and situations from multiple perspectives. After all, if you shun new experiences, you will miss out on exciting opportunities. And many of those opportunities involve seeing existing elements of the world in a new way.
