2 min readNov 10, 2021

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 2021

In September I had the chance to try a few new things! I attended a Fulbright Oregon meeting with my friend Amy and her family, where they showed us Halloween traditions and activities.

I also joined the Portland State University sailing club, and tried it out for the first time! I love taking advantage of the campus clubs and communities Portland State University has to offer!

Marwa is a 2021 Fulbright student from Tunisia. She is Urban Planning at Portland State University.

Follow updates from Marwa and other Fulbright students on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Check back here every month for more updates on the blog and Medium Series to see what Marwa does this year!
