Was the MESA information you received in your home country clear? Was the description of your training site accurate? What more would you have liked MESA to send you before you left you home country?It was very clear and accurate. All the information sent was sufficient.
If you worked with a Program Representative in your home country, was he/she helpful? Is there anything more the Representative could have done to help you complete your application or to better understand MESA's program?The program representatives are very helpful and the help they gave me was sufficient.
Any problems with housing, electricity, heat, phone, driver's license, bank account, transportation? Other problems?I had problems with navigating my new cell phone. I couldn't start an iPhone account with accessing my email and I had to create another email for my phone.
Describe the training you have received since getting to your placement site. What have you learned so far? Have you attended any special training, workshops, conferences, classes, etc.?I already knew my training before arriving to the placement site. However, we did do an analysis of the coffee leaves to understand what nutirents the trees had. This is new for me.
Have you been involved in an cultural activities since your arrival? (examples : farmers' workshop, library event, soccer games, family activities, etc)Every Sunday, I am working at the farmer's market and have a chance to make friends and participate in the activities of the market. Recently, there was the Kona Coffee Festival and I had a chance to go! I saw local Hawaiian music events with Ukulele and Hula dancing!
Any suggestions to improve MESA's program?I wish there was more personal communication with the representatives and me. It would be nice if they sent me an email every 2 weeks or a month, just to ask how I am doing in Hawaii.
