From Indonesia and California to Sweden: Aileen's Stories - Episode 9


This is part one of our interview with Aileen Hendratna, an Indonesian-American agriculture scientist who feels most at home in international communities. After college in California she was inspired to study her masters in water resource management in Sweden. She found the initial transition to be smooth because she knew how to adjust to a new country after her previous challenging adjustment to the U.S. during her teen years.

She loved her international church community, Sweden’s fika culture, and closeness to nature.
