This video was created for work and a class assignment. It was a partnership with Florida State University’s University Counseling Center, International Programs, and the Healthy Campus 2020 Mental Health Committee.
This video spotlights two Florida State students, Neleen Leslie and Parth Vakil, and the struggles and success they have seen as an international student. The main purpose was to show incoming FSU international students that there are people like them who have experienced culture shock but have used the community of support and resources to become an outstanding student and during the transition into a new environment and culture. You’re Not Alone. We are all here to support, love, and listen.
Special thank you to all involved, including Kaori Kureda, Tanmoy Das, Fiorella Carlos Chavez, Nikhil Katta, Mandar Pingle, and Saiprassad Guwasegaran.
