From Sweden to California: Aileen's Return Stories - Episode 10

This week we are sharing part 2 or our interview with Aileen Hendratna, an Indonesian-American agriculture scientist who feels most at home in international communities. She studied her masters in water resource management in Sweden for over two years. There, she relished the time in nature, in the fika culture of building relationships, and in the diversity of her international community. 


Financial challenges had Aileen return to California, and her transition back home to the Bay Area and Central Valley was a lonely experience. Listen in as Aileen shares that, in time, she recognized that being in her new place, too, was God’s gift which was entrusted to her.
