Hello there! Namaskara! My name is Aveed. I am part of the Needs Assessment Team. The week-long orientation has finally come to an end. There were so many things during the orientation that have helped me gain a better understanding on the work that I will be doing with the iSTEP team in India. The orientation also helped me frame better connections and interactions with the iSTEP team from Pittsburgh. I am excited for the upcoming 9 weeks which I believe wil instill in me a real-world real-work experience. Stay tuned as 8 of us from the iSTEP team will be publishing stories every week giving you a snapshot of our brief time here in Bengaluru.
