I truly learned about communicating with people and how to maximize the effect and efficiency with people who have different thoughts and characteristics. Finding the way that makes teams work is what leaders need to do.

In just 6 weeks in a completely unfamiliar country and a team of young energetic individuals from various corners of the world, the project team had a huge task at hand. Being from different backgrounds and cultures it hardly took me a week to bond well enough to call all the interns my family as we were all unified by the cause of our project.
