Video Blog – The Life Of A Kiva Fellow

by Nick Hamilton, KF14, Colombia

When it comes to blogging, a new pastime of mine, I often go a bit heavy on the word count. Not this time. This is a video blog and so I’ll let the video do the talking.

I made this short film over a few weeks during my time serving as a Kiva Fellow at Esperanza International in the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

My intention was to give viewers a good idea of some of the things a Kiva Fellow gets up to. I also wanted to produce something that would encourage prospective Fellows to apply. I hope I’ve achieved those two goals and I hope you enjoy it.

Nick has now finished his placement with Esperanza International and has just embarked on a new one with Interactuar in Colombia.
