A Year in the Fulbright Life: Aroub’s Story

I watched a baseball game for the first time between the Phillies and Atlanta Braves at the Citizens Bank Park Stadium. It was an exciting game, and Phillies fans showed loyalty to their team by insisting on staying in the stadium while it was raining until the end!

I was thrilled to have lunch with the dean of the College of Pharmacy at Thomas Jefferson University, faculty members, and my colleagues. We discussed our program and our expectations and learned more about the dean’s career path and achievements. We had a great time, and the dean was kind and welcoming.

I celebrated Hispanic/Latino heritage month with my friends by having Mexican food at one of Philly’s downtown Mexican restaurants.

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