Let the Fulbright Adventure Begin!

This will be my very last blog post of my undergraduate career, and as I think back on my 4 years here, the memories come flooding back. The highlights of my undergraduate career include the incredible experiences made possible by OU’s Global Engagement Fellowship Program, such as studying abroad in Beijing, China and Stuttgart, Germany, and getting connected with people all around the world (from Bolivia to Italy to China). Looking to the future, I was awarded the prestigious Fulbright research grant! I will be going to Germany in September to research oncolytic viruses for one year, and I am beyond excited. I could not have done it without the support of my GEF adviser, Bushra Asif, as well as my family and friends, who proof-read my Fulbright application and encouraged me along the way. Even though I am sad to be leaving OU, I cannot be more thankful to all the people here who made my experience so full. As I look forward to more adventures, beginning from Germany and then going who-knows-where, I will never forget where I came from and will be forever indebted to this beautiful place.
