I think even from when I first arrived you guys were so sweet. You met me with water and a sandwich, which seems like such a small thing but was just what I needed after a long flight. Little touches like that are really special. Also taking me to my first day and making sure I know where to go, little thoughtful details like that are what makes you guys such a great organization. Also knowing if anything happened you guys would be there.
From the minute I had been in touch with Lucie about applying, she made sure that the placement I was looking for matched me perfectly! From then I had full faith in them as they always kept me up to date and briefed me on what to expect when I arrived! Bridging Gaps provided one of the best services I have experienced so far!
