A great journey indeed!
“We are all interns from a different state. A great journey indeed! Thank you so much HPUSA for helping mold us to be who we are today! It has been a roller coaster journey but it all started with a decision to challenge myself to join the HPUSA Cultural Exchange Program. It has helped me build strength and character.”
