Deerwalk has grown over the past couple years! There were so many new faces in the Boston office. It was really great to (re)connect and see people in person.

With the help of the design team, I learned how to use several software programs. They showed me how they utilized Photoshop to create mockups, Dreamweaver to edit the HTML and CSS code of websites, and Wordpress to create functional sites. Mr. Kanchan Raj Pandey introduced me to the new software and its capabilities. With Ankita, a fellow intern, we explored new tools and created projects using what we learned.
After a long and tiresome flight of twenty hours or so, from Kathmandu to Doha to Boston, I was happy to find Abanish and Namita waiting for me at Boston’s Logan airport and I was eager for an amazing US experience.
I had thought that my world cup fever would subside in America but, to my surprise, Sanjeev and Ashay took me to Rudra’s house on the very first day to watch the semifinal match between Netherlands and Argentina. Muna, Erica and Mahika were already cheering and we joined them in watching the greatest show on earth.
It was a hectic month of visa applications along with my regular work at Deerwalk before I could breathe a sigh of relief when my application was accepted. I was overjoyed and, at the same time, a little anxious about what to expect when I finally got to the US.
