From my arrival in Bonn for orientation, I found myself surrounded by some of the most interesting people I’d ever met. Fulbrighters from across the U.S., in Germany to study economics, physics, medieval literature, engineering, music, and so many more areas. All with vastly different lives and experiences, but brought together for a few days because of a passion for learning, an eagerness for engagement, and a desire for new connections. Those intensely stimulating days (and Biergarten evenings) were an amazing start to what was one of the most remarkable, challenging, and fulfilling years of my life.
