A Year in the Fulbright Life: Leila’s Story

For the next year, Fulbright MENA will be showcasing a handful of students as they study in the United States with their new series, A Year in the Fulbright Life. Each month, spotlighted students will share an update as they continue on their Fulbright journey.

“What’s better than kicking off the new semester at an iconic ice-cream shop with my American best friend and a picnic with fellow Fulbrighters from Spain and Pakistan.”

“To make these moments even more special, I wore garnet and black, the official colors of my university.”

“I am looking forward to another great year at the University of South Carolina!”


Leila is a second-year Fulbrighter from Tunisia working on her Master’s in Mass Communications. She’s currently a student at University of South Carolina.
