I am Shruv. When I reached at Washington DC I was very scared, unknown country, unknown people, and unknown rules. There was a lot of thoughts in my mind, But when I came to my apartment I was just shocked my roommates were too friendly with me, which I never expected. They treat me as a younger brother.
When I went to the campus I was silent and I just talk to my few friends, but the other guys came to me and they want to know about me which I had lack in my country. Now every single day I feel like a celebrity everyone want to know about me, my culture, and my customs. My friends never said anything wrong about my English cause my English is not good yet.
After joining this program my confidence level is increased day by day, also I knew a very important thing that is ‘don’t judge a book by his cover’.
This program is not just going to teach me about my major subject this will also teach me how to be a good person in life. Not only this program every single participant taught me something. Sometimes I inspired by their lifes how they achieved this opportunity. Now I am able to know many countrys culture, ethics by their ambassador beside if this thinks we have a guide a very caring guide miss Kate and Kelly who teach us how to deal with our problems and encouraging us.
So it is a very nice experience for me to join such a huge program and thank you so much.
The thing I most like about people they listen to me and they tell me what is good for me . Thank you so much for a beautiful journey which just begin now.
