Meet @mads_elick our peru intern for this year! We are so excited to have your light, creativity, and intelligence on the team! You make the word more beautiful!
Meet Madison:
1) I am smart.
2) I am light.
3) I am always learning.
Why am I excited to intern with Groundswell peru this year:
I am excited to intern with Groundswell because of all the new adventures, people, places, and experiences I will be able to encounter. I am also excited to put into practice some of the things I have learned throughout my schooling.
How does the ocean inspires you?
The ocean inspires me by the way in which it has the ability to reach so many people. Whether I am in the water in Ocean Beach or all the way in Huanchaco, Peru, it is the same ocean. It unifies and refreshes all those who enter. It's gentle and consistent, yet strong and powerful -- which is a beautiful paradox I long to live like.
What you do for self-love?
Some things I do for self-love are: doodling, treating myself to a yummy snack or drink, sitting in the sun, high-fiving myself, and wearing funky clothes.

It’s shaping up to be another epic week!
