FELLOWSHIP REFLECTIONS

Major:  Russian; International Relations

My fellowship experience
"A fellowship is not something to put on a resume, but an idea waiting to become what one makes of it.  In my case, a fellowship in diplomacy is a responsibility to partake in a process and impart one's values."
