SEEING A NEW SIDE OF BANGLADESH AND FEELING A DEEPER CONNECTION TO THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE

Working with RMMRU was a very positive experience, and I learned many different things from my time working on this project. Even as an Anthropologist, I found this research project to be enjoyable and fulfilling. I think this experience will help me in my future career and life. I also found the transportation methods used by our research team – motorcycle, boat, and van – to be quite fun. For me, these are new ways of getting around, which might be part of why I liked them so much. I...
