When I arrived as a Fulbright Scholar, it was clear that progress had been made because of our involvement and that the door was open for me to assist in the development of innovative programs.
The architecture that Fulbright has built creates a wonderful opportunity for collaboration.
Reviving my graduate school interest in and knowledge of Polish language was really fun and will prove useful in my career in future. I was able to confidently state that the whole city was my conversation partner, as I worked on my speaking and comprehension skills.
Being deeply moved by the number of students whose research interests centered on some aspect of American and more specifically African American culture, my fondness for Polish culture, and by my success as a lecturer and performer got me interested in extending my Fulbright Award through the 2013-2014 academic year.
