What is one thing every participant should know before participating in your program?
It is good to know about what phone and Internet package is good, the different banks, how the medical system works. It’s good to know about the cost of living and if the wage / salary will cover one there. It’s good to know a little bit about the culture, although in my opinion, I found the locals to be very friendly. Although, as it was around covid, it made some things more difficult than others, especially financially.

I do still miss Prague and will love to return back. I feel I have grown in confidence, I am more aware of my strengths and weaknesses and found more love for myself.
