A Year in the Fulbright Life: Ahmed’s Story
Airshows are a big part of the US culture, and, as an aerospace engineering graduate student, I cannot miss this opportunity. I went to the Joint Base Andrews Air & Space show in DC with my Senegalese American friend. It was an extremely fun experience and different for me to witness this number of different airplanes with several designs and multiple functions.
I recently had the change to share Egyptian culture with other students on campus. This event was the Egyptian Student Association’s first event at the University of Maryland. There were a lot of students with many different nationalities, and we all enjoyed an Egyptian-themed night with lots of Egyptian desserts and food.
Ahmed is a 2022 Fulbrighter from Egypt. He studies Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland-College Park.
