A Year in the Fulbright Life: Aroub’s Story

While spending vacation time with friends in Boston, I had the chance to visit MIT, Harvard University, and the different science and art museums there. This allowed me to learn more about the city’s history and to experience new things like touching a rock from space (a meteorite) and seeing fossils from hundreds of millions of years ago. It allowed me to enjoy the art and the greatness of diverse ancient civilizations from every continent. The trip was well spent with lovely friends from China who invited us to an authentic Chinese dinner.

Aroub is a 2022 Fulbright student from Jordan. She is studying Pharmacology at Thomas Jefferson University.
