On June 20 this year, we welcomed Snehaa Suresh to join the Hubton family. Although temporary, her presence was very special to us. This also marked our first journey as a part of AIESEC.
At Hubton, we welcome exchange students and interns from around the world because we love to expand our horizon. As one of our missions to be internationally acknowledged, we partner with AIESEC (International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences). Through this organization, we got the chance to host Snehaa Suresh, a college student from the University of Alberta in Canada. She came to Indonesia right after Eid al-Fitr. Our very own Zaki and Andini picked her up at the airport in Jakarta and became her host parents in Bandung. This automatically makes Snehaa a part of the Hubton family!
On weekdays, Snehaa volunteered at Rumah Lentera as a part of the Malala Project by AIESEC. The main purpose of this project was ‘Equality of Education’. Sheena contributed in the project by teaching English. In addition, she made use of her time in Indonesia to learn our beautiful language. When she got off Rumah Lentera, she would hang around Hubton’s office and practice her Bahasa Indonesia with us. She would also help us practice our English with her. Win-win!
It was amazing to have Sheena passionately shares her experience at Rumah Lentera. We also enjoyed her story about her life in Canada, her family in India, and many more. Her presence and graceful demeanor surely made our office felt much more alive.
Bidding Snehaa farewell
By the end of August, Snehaa had to go home. She told us that she planned to visit India before going all the way back to Canada. It was so hard to say goodbye, but we will never forget her.
They say that the pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again, and we are hopeful about this. So, farewell Snehaa! Till we meet again. 🙂
