My Fulbright Experience: Francisco Carvalho
«Being a Fulbrighter changed me personally and professionally. At first, from a personal perspective it was an amazing opportunity to share and to experience a huge diversity of cultures with people from all over the world. Having this experience during a global pandemic gave me a wider perspective about how different and connected we can be as human beings and increased my sense of global responsibility. From a professional perspective it gave me the opportunity to establish an important network that will be crucial for my present and future academic career. By having the chance to travel across the country due to my field work I was able to experience the cultural richness of the United States and to collect memories about the beautiful landscapes of the Northwest and Southwest, from the snowy mountains of the Mount Rainier to the warm rocky layers of the Grand Canyon.»
