A Year in the Fulbright Life: Aroub’s Story

For the next year, Fulbright MENA will be showcasing a handful of students as they study in the United States with their new series, A Year in the Fulbright Life. Each month, spotlighted students will share an update as they continue on their Fulbright journey.

August 2022

Only at this moment I realized how hard it is to leave my country, family, friends, my favorite places, and my comfort zone to travel to a completely new place. But I also knew deep down how exciting the journey will be, how big the world is waiting for me, and how much I will grow and learn. I’m ready for the new experiences, feelings, ideas, knowledge, places, people and the memories I’ll make.

Aroub is a 2022 Fulbrighter from Jordan. She studies Pharmaceutical Sciences at Thomas Jefferson University.
