I chose Fulbright because I relished the chance to do research I was passionate about in a place I loved.

 When I got to my location, I first took some time to get lost in my city.

 I brought good walking shoes with me 

 The trip to get here was surreal.

 Something I have never done before is undertake independent fieldwork.

 I was surprised by the amount of support from our Fulbright commission.

 I love the freedom I have to define my project.

 When I am doing my research I am always looking for connections to other disciplines and communities and noting potential implications.

 I want to tell a Smithie thinking about applying for a Fulbright it’s worth it.
