My dream job would be to work in the U.S. but travel abroad as a consultant. I want to learn how communities around the world tackle issues we have in the U.S., then bring that knowledge back. I want to help others and become a better person, not just for myself but for the people and organizations I serve.
I wanted to use my experience as an immigrant kid to advocate for community members at all levels. I had also heard great things about the U-M social work program from friends who had enrolled.
Alumni Board of Governors Scholarship Award
I was able to go to London for six weeks to study micro-communities. I used a lot of what I learned in school, and I was super happy. I had always wanted to do global work. I am so grateful I could get the funds from the Alumni Board of Governors to go there.
