“I have been helping American students for more than 25 years with resident visas, housing, food, health and safety, and academic research. It’s a job that requires finding creative solutions every day, but it is a pleasure to see the increased interest and great success the students gain about the culture, language, society, and biodiversity of Sri Lanka.”
