Q&A: CAES Student interns in Bangkok

Faustine Sonon


Faustine Sonon a CAES food science and technology major, interned with the Asian Institute of Technology in Thailand last summer. He worked on a project that incorporates essential nutrients into foods for impoverished children. In this interview, he shares some of his experiences and offers advice for students who are considering studying abroad.

Faustine, you were an undergraduate certificate student and fulfilled your international internship requirement this summer. Where did you go and why?

I went to Bangkok, Thailand, for an internship with the Asian Institute of Technology. I didnít really know what I was getting into, but my mom went to Thailand when she was a grad student and IĎve always wanted to go.

How was living in Bangkok?

I lived in the Philippines for seven years and knew what Southeast Asia was like. Even though I didnít know the language, I was able to get around fine.
