My name is Dedek Ahmad Suprianto. I come from Indonesia where is famous for wonderful islands and beauty places. I am a last year student of Advanced Education Program on Environmental Science and Management at Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry, Vietnam. As a last year student, I am currently participating an internship program in America through International Training and Development Center (ITC) of Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry
My group in America is a non-profit organization providing international exchange opportunities to students, youth and adults. The program’s goal is to promote world peace and understanding through culture exchanges and global friendship to be accomplished through academic, professional and recreactional programs.
When I heard about that program, I always wondered that oneday I can set foot on the United State and discorver new land, new culture which helps me a lot in the future. Luckily, my dream came true when I went to the ITC of Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry (www.tuaf.edu.vn) and aksed the opportunity to participate in an agricultural exchange program. I flighted to the US from 15th March and I’ve stayed in North Carolina for nearly 9 months and worked with other interns coming from Vietnam, Ukraine, Mexico….
There are two main reasons to why I chose to participate in this program:
Firstly, it is one of the best internship programs in the United States, which offers provides international exchange opportunities, including cultural exchange and global friendship. Therefore, this program is a good opportunitiy for those who want to experience international exchange and broaden connection with people from other countries.
Secondly, through this program, I want to obtain international working experience and achieve the certificate of completion which will be useful for my career. Thanks to this program, I strongly belive that I will have a good job with high salary and get a lot of welcoming from international organization in Indonesia.
In the USA, I have been trained as a turf management technician in North Carolina. Everyday, I join into all activities related to turf and turfgrass management which brings me a lot experience and helpful skills such as mowing, fertilization, irrigration, and use of machinery and equipments. In the golf course, most of the works are done by using machinery and equipments, so the works are not difficult.
