Why Michigan?

I came to Michigan on June 10th 2021 about 3 weeks before my program started. Michigan, in my opinion, has one of the best communities in the US. Everyone is so kind, caring and eager to help.

When you're not working, what do you do for fun?

Workout, play chess and go on long walks.

What do you miss most about home?

My family and our family gatherings. We keep in touch by video calls.

Favorite quotation?

"A simple act of caring creates an endless ripple." It reminds me that the smallest of actions can lead to a lasting effect.
