Arts student travels to Peru with St. Jerome's Beyond Borders program
Guest blog by Wil Schmor
Hola! My name is Wil Schmor and I am entering my 3A term at the University of Waterloo studying Global Business And Digital Arts (GBDA). I spent my spring term in Chiclayo, Peru working for a coffee brand called Café Femenino. This was done through the Beyond Borders program at St. Jerome’s University.
At Café Femenino I worked on special projects related to marketing the product in the domestic market of Peru and international markets around the world. This included designing product packaging, project management for a new website, and university presentations. While I was working I was able to see the entire process of the Café Femenino product from coffee plant to final product.
My time in Peru was successful for me because it was a great way to apply the things I have been learning in my program. Studying GBDA requires you to apply what you learn in the real world and I was able to do this.
If you have any questions or would like more information I would love to chat! My Twitter is @theschmor and my email is email@example.com if you would like to contact me.
