Working in a refugee camp made me realize how much work needs to be done. I want to work internationally in the hope of turning this into a borderless world.
I was interested in global social work. When I applied to graduate schools, I focused on those with strong MSW programs and solid global programs. U-M had both, so it became my top choice.
Olivia P. Maynard Children and Family Fellowship
The Olivia P. Maynard Fellowship has helped me greatly. Being international, I am not eligible for federal loans or work-study positions at U-M, nor am I allowed to take off-campus jobs. The fellowship has taken a huge load off my shoulders, and I am very thankful.
