This internship opportunity has been extremely fruitful and valuable. It has made me step out of my comfort zone and experience a different culture. I am really thankful to my colleagues and superiors for their warm hospitality. Although there were difficulties such as language barrier, they constantly guided and motivated me to strive harder. I feel that you should not underestimate yourself but always try to challenge your own potential. Indonesia is actually a huge and beautiful country so use the weekends wisely and explore different parts of it!
