A Year in the Fulbright Life: Esraa’s Story

I was beyond delighted to get the chance to present in a Local Conference of Youth (LCOY USA) during the side events at Drexel University of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The presentation was about the science of climate change and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. LCOY is an event under the umbrella of YOUNGO, the official youth constituency of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

I was able to spend some time in Philadelphia! What a beautiful place.

I was invited to dinner at the house of one of my American friends. Her dad made us the most delicious food ever.

This was the first time in my life that I’ve seen snow on a mountain peak. I was able to take a picture from the roof of the place that I live!

Esraa is a 2022 Fulbrighter from Egypt. She studies Climate Science and Solutions at Northern Arizona University-Flagstaff.
