Ana del Valle Duque

My name is Ana del Valle Duque. I am from A Coruña, a nice city located in the North-West of Spain. I am 26 years old and studied Tourism in A Coruña. In 2009 I was doing an internship as a Tourguide for school children and tourist in The Tower of Hercules (is the only fully preserved Roman lighthouse that is still in used) and since that year has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For 4 years I lived in Berlin where I finish my studies and I was working in several jobs, as in a Startup working for a app for public transportation around the world and learning German and in an International Tourist Office Turespaña in Berlin planning and organisazing travels for German and Spanish tourist . At the moment I am doing a course of Ecological Tourism. Next year I would like to study a master in Cottbus called “World Heritage Studies”. Every time I can, I like travelling to different countries to discover new cultures and being in contact with local people. I think that is the best way to know a new place. My last trip was on August, I travelled with 3 friends with a van to the Balkans for 15 days. We were visiting many countries and it was a very nice experience. On my free time, I have fun hiking, climbing and surfing. Another hobbies that I have are ceramic and sewing. I enjoy helping another people. In 2007, I was doing a volunter in an International Project Workcamp in Czech Republic for a project in Křivoklátsko in a protected natural area in Czech Republic . One year later, I jointed another Workcamp in Iceland, the project was about renovation and conservation of an Icelandic Art Museum in Ísafjörður . I was also doing a volunteering in an Organisation called Ainde A Coruña that is organizing activities for disabled people. I think that the conservation of the Heritage of our forbears is very important, not only for all the cultures, but also for the current and future societies. This heritage shows us the evolution and the cultural steps that the humanity has improved along the history to become what we are nowadays. It is essential to know and preserve our past art and culture to be able to understand the present and future. For this reason, I consider fascinating to have the opportunity to participate in The GoUNESCO Internship Program.
