What Others Had To Say

Mathieu Bosson (Namur, Belgium)

Participating in Knowledge Must's Winter in India program my expectations were exceeded in all ways. At first it was hard to achieve a sense of respect (I think the Indians were testing my limits). But after a few days I was able to start communicating with them in Hindi and people began respecting me. It was a very challenging experience, but at the same time extremely rewarding. Now that I am home I have been offered a great job. Many companies I thought would never even invite me to a job interview did so and all of them asked me about the India experience on my CV.

Jan Verhoeven (Weert, Netherlands)

My time in India was one of the best experiences I've had, and I think it actually changed me to an extent, and placed me on the path I'm on now.

Wang Xinru (Wuxi, China)

The combination of internship, cultural training, language and travel has enabled me to decide upon my future career. The world and possibilities for me have widened vastly. I acquired a new understanding of life and felt I was finally engaging in something worthwhile.

Soichiro Kobayashi (Yokohama, Japan)

Whenever anyone asks me about my work experience, they are always extremely interested in my time in India. I tell them that it was wonderful, but I don't seem fully able to describe to them the meaning of the experience to me. I suppose you have to experience India yourself in order to fully appreciate how wonderful it really is.

Sun-Won Park (Incheon, South Korea)

I’m really enjoying my stay in Delhi and the people here are very hospitable. Frankly, the word hospitality is not enough to express Indian generosity. Only now I am realising that India in fact is a rich country. The people lead a simple lifestyle. But their family, friends and their culture enriches their lives immensely. Thank you for all of your support. Your effort and your program were critical to my India experience.

Foo Hui Ting (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

When I came to India I had no idea what to expect. I was very ignorant of India's culture, and most of the aspects of the country. At home I often heard about the bad parts of the country. I was amazed to see that there were so many mistruths in circulation. India has opened my eyes to the realities of cultural diversity and it has given me the courage to face challenges alone. I feel so indebted!
