"I started attending CADAL activities five years ago. I was finishing college and I wanted to do something that was beyond academics. CADAL was ideal because it allowed me to connect what I learned with the issue of human rights and economic development in Latin America. Over time I was integrated into the organization, and I was able to write and publish articles and develop projects as a survey of national legislators. Furthermore, CADAL gave me the opportunity to bond with students and professors from other institutions, as well as to learn things that are not taught in college: like the 'kitchen' of a think tank, how to engage with the media, or how to put together activities and generate contacts with diplomats, businessmen and politicians ".
