Warm and welcoming!
I was very much out of my element as a Bangladeshi American grad student when I joined HKI VN for my practicum, in a different country not knowing the language, but the staff here has been supportive from day one. The close-knit environment made me feel part of the team and the director kept me involved in project activities. While the language barrier kept me from being completely involved with implementation and data, I was still able to try a new analysis tool and go over questionnaires. The staff was always understanding of situations that arose, giving me time off as needed, and ready to help with any questions or concerns I'd have.
