Q: What experiences at Emory prepared you for the Fulbright award? 

A: My academic experiences at Emory prepared me to receive the Fulbright grant, particularly my work in the environmental science department. I was fortunate to be able to work one on one with many professors and engage in various research projects, which helped shape my interests and make me a strong candidate for the fellowship.

Q: What memorable or interesting things happened during your Fulbright fellowship experience? 

A: The fellowship was a great opportunity as it allowed me to both get my master’s degree and work closely with a professor. However, the best part of the fellowship was that it led to my full-time job in Copenhagen where I am now working at an international NGO. It was the first time I was able to focus fully on my studies without having to work to support myself as I had to do my entire undergrad, which was an amazing experience.

Q: What advice would you give current applicants, or to students considering applying for a nationally competitive award?

A: Research what you want to do in the country where you will research/study. It is challenging to predict your specific interests far in advance, so I think it is better to prioritize a professor or advisor that has many different connections and a diverse background if you are not set on a particular project.
