My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for VinaCapital Foundation, Ho Chi Minh City, , Vietnam
I was an intern at VCF for a month and a half during the summer of 2020. Interning at VCF was truly an eye-opening experience, for the past month and a half I was surrounded by passionate professionals who offered me guidance and knowledge. They pushed me to progress in some areas I was more comfortable with such as writing but also asked me to leave my zone of comfort. For example, I was asked to follow google classes in order to better understand google ads and write a report on how to maximize our advertising. Moreover, Ms Ngan asked me to analyze hundreds of pages of heavy research in order to write an analytical summary. I definitely feel more confident in such areas and feel like I have truly benefited from all the writing I had to do for the press releases, Mr Sun fan page or others. Ms Han also asked me to create and brainstorm for this years World Heart day, which was a great learning experience for me. They trusted my work but also corrected me when necessary, providing a perfect balance of autonomy and leadership.
All in all I am more than happy with what I have learnt at VCF and am forever grateful for all the individuals who have given me this opportunity and their time.
Most respectfully, Maria Kouteili
