By now you may have seen our blog’s 2014 in review and annual report. The residents and alumni who wrote blog posts during our “pilot season” deserve to be recognized for their creative writing, unique perspectives and multi-lingual skills. Each author shared a taste of the extraordinary happenings at International House, and we are grateful for their contributions and for sharing the love!
