As some of you might have seen our Facebook post—sharing Dr. George Simons's testimonials about our initial motivation to take part in JUR Migrant project, it has also been an interesting journey for all team members to become a part of a multi-cultural team. Working with people from various backgrounds and cultures, each individual contributes our strengths and improves our weaknesses.
