Alexandra Manea’s Participation in the Enrichment Seminar, Providence, Rhode Island

Alexandra Malina Manea - Fulbright Student Researcher, American University in Washington, DC, imparts to us impressions on her participation in the Fulbright Enrichment Seminar in Providence this March:

“I am so glad to write to you about the great time I had at the Fulbright Enrichment Seminar in Providence, Rhode Island. It has been a 4 day’s seminar which brought together 100 Fulbrighters from 67 different countries. We participated in workshops on “political leadership” and “political change”, renovated an Arts Community Center, visited museums and learned a lot about the world and communities, cultural differences and sensitivities, about how similar we are, in spite of these differences. It has been a unique opportunity to interact with so many smart active young people and I have been so proud to realize I am part of this community.”
