Having finished the first week of training for my Intercultural Aide position at MSU, I want to thank all the people that helped me do this! So many of you gave whatever help, advice, and support you could, and I’m appreciating it now more than ever. And I know my residents this year will be thankful for you too when I pass it onto them.
