Na primeira pessoa,  Pedro Oliveira partilha connosco a sua experiência Fulbright. Ao abrigo de uma Bolsa Fulbright para Investigação com o apoio da FCT (21/22) e no âmbito do seu doutoramento em Public Law da Universidade de Coimbra, Pedro desenvolveu parte da sua pesquisa na University of California-Berkeley, CA, e também na University of Columbia, NY, EUA.



«As a Fulbrighter, I experienced wonderful and unique things that brought me growth both on personal and academic levels. It was the first time I lived abroad for such a long period by myself. If travel logistics and adaptation to a new environment trigger challenges for everyone, it was even more difficult in my case, as I am visually impaired. Nothing would have been possible without the assistance of my dear guide dog, Java. At UC Berkeley and Columbia University, I successfully conducted my research regarding the employment of persons with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act. I am very grateful to Professor David Oppenheimer and Professor Elizabeth Emens for having supervised and supported.»


Muito obrigada, Pedro, welcome back!
