  • My work at the BMIG saw my professor include me in all kinds of research, including a research trip to the US Naval archives in Washington, DC. I am so grateful for the interesting job experience and unforgettable opportunity to travel. The experience I gained not only benefitted me professionally, but also enhanced my academic success.
