I have been happily living and studying in New York, at Columbia University, for one semester now. I could not have asked for a better start to my stay in the US. Besides having definitely found the perfect fit with my graduate degree, I am lucky enough to be able to be surrounded by a wonderful set of friends I met through Fulbright, either at the Gateway orientation or at posterior events. It makes the whole experience so much better – I can’t wait to see what is left in store for the next semesters!
