The Hmong Student Buddy Day 2018 gave the U.S. students the opportunity to interact with the Hmong-Thai students from various universities of Thailand; the purpose of this activity is to network and share, learn, and exchange culture and languages. It is also a way to prepare both the U.S students and Hmong-Thai students to be productive in the global society at Klong Lat Mayom floating market, Bangkok.
