Introducing… You!

Hello Mekong Crew!

Welcome to our Yak Board!

We’ll be posting many other introductions and updates here that are important for you to take a look at. Before the course we recommend you check this space every few days; the Yak board will be a direct way we as instructors will be communicating with you. It is also a way for you to get to know one another prior to meeting at the airport.

Now that we’ve had the chance to introduce ourselves, we would love for you to post your own introduction at your earliest convenience.

You do not need to write long personal narratives but we would like to hear a bit about you and your interests. There are some guiding questions to follow that may be helpful.

Please do not forget to include a photo!

– Your name
– Where do you come from?
– Why did you choose to go on the Mekong Semester?
– What gets you excited about this upcoming journey?
– What are you passionate about in life?
– How are you spending these final weeks prior to our departure?

Here’s an example of a simple yak posted by a past student.

We’re looking forward to learning about you all!

Warm regards,
-Your I-Team (Karlee, Anna, and Gai)
