A Year in the Fulbright Life: Donia’s Story

April 2022

When I left the West Bank to come to the United States for my master’s degree, I had tons of conflicting emotions and didn’t know what to expect. I was away from my home and family in a totally different environment and culture. I had some ups and downs, but I finally made it! I’m grateful to the Fulbright Program for giving me this opportunity to help make my dreams come true. It was absolutely an unforgettable experience. I am very proud of myself and for the person I have become, and I dedicate this accomplishment to my beloved homeland.
