Fulbright Scholarship Recipient
I am thrilled to be awarded the Fulbright scholarship to attend the Masters of Public Administration at SDA Bocconi this year. As a daughter of educators, I am a firm believer that education empowers us to develop personally and become more politically active. Throughout my studies, I have always been active on a community level and found ways to make contributions of change. I am eager to take advantage of the excellent opportunities that Bocconi provides and continue to grow upon my skills and ultimately find the right career path.
I am motivated to pursue this degree in Public Administration through the SDA Bocconi School of Management to assist and enhance the development and evolution of international cities facing adaptation issues. In the past year, there has been a record for human migration with masses of people arriving in Europe to escape political upheaval. There is no doubt that cities will continue to grow with the constant migration of populations to urban communities. Yet, creating positive change through legible and understandable policy can guarantee that cities benefit current residents and future generations as well. Having lived in several international cities myself, I am extremely interested in learning the skills necessary to make cities more livable for all.
SDA Bocconi School of Management allows for an interesting opportunity not only to concentrate in city management, but to engage in a hands-on experience through a summer internship program. I plan to use this opportunity to specifically assist in real management issues affecting cities either in Italy or around Europe. I could not be more thrilled for this opportunity that the Fulbright Commission has provided for me. Not only am I motivated by the curriculum and institution, however, this diverse group of individuals with whom I will be working give me the chance to learn from different backgrounds, experiences, and expertise.
