"NASFA Regional Conference is one of the best professional training opportunities with sufficient resources that I have received since I found myself a role in the international education. NASFA conference helped me understand the power of sharing knowledge and networking and released me from trying to solve issues all by myself. I have been empowered by the conference with knowing that I am not alone, and there is a community out there caring about what I care and working together to make good differences in international education. As a new professional at Greenville University, I am deeply grateful about the financial support from International Educators of Illinois (IEI). The receipt of this grant facilitated my proposal to attend my first regional conference. I view this as a good start for me to grow as a professional and contribute more to both my institution and international education."
