Jay Vinda: United Kingdom – Mechanical Engineering at University of Leicester

“My time with WindAid has been the best experience of my life to date and is one that I will never forget. I was always interested in entering into a career path with renewable energy and the experience that I had with WindAid has reaffirmed my desire to do so. I left for Peru expecting to only make achievements that would help me on my CV but instead achieved so much more. I gained both academic and non-academic experiences from learning how to weld and innovate to learning salsa and witnessing a new culture. Along with all of this I made a network of new friends who I will never forget. My favourite moment was when we turned on the wind turbines as it was at that moment that I was able to see what impact 3 weeks of work had led to! My advice to anyone who is thinking about this project is to do it!”
