A Year in the Fulbright Life: Saja’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.
“Here is a picture of me and other Fullbrighters from all around the world. We decided to start our semester with an event to welcome the first year new students, catch up with the old ones and support each other. The students in this picture are from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and NC state University.”
I visited the 150th North Carolina State Fair. At the fair, they demonstrate the state’s agricultural history, the biggest and the most important local crops, unique animals, the best state produce, some baking contests, and finally many fun rides. I learned so much about North Carolina in only one day.
Saja is a second-year Fulbrighter from Iraq working on her Master’s in MPH in Maternal and Child Health at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
