I came to Philippines not expecting to meet someone who has given me wise advice not only for the trip but also in life. She showed me that in order to work in this field, you need to essentially integrate in their culture. Connections are also a super important thing to have in this field because doing anything would make things much easier. I learned a lot from watching her deal with life, deal with work, and how she can separate her personal life from her professional life. She is about to leave the Philippines after being here for six years. Her final farewell with other people also shows how great of a person she is. There were many good lucks said and tears shed.
