When Nation Next spoke to Jonathan Hwang, Assistant Cultural Affair Officer US Consulate General, Mumbai, he said, “Various alumni from USA came here to share their experience and discuss the programs that they had in their universities. I love these discussions as these alumni give a testimonial of their experiences.”

It is a great initiative to connect directly with students who aspire to pursue their further education in USA. As I had done my internship from Ohio, I was more interested in meeting representatives from Ohio.
