A Year in the Fulbright Life: Silva’s Story

I decided to escape the East Coast cold & spend it in San Francisco, California. I enjoyed exploring the city and seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. I visited Silicon Valley, the world’s technology hub, Chinatown, Little Italy, and Santa Cruz, I then spent New Year’s and Christmas time with my relatives. One of my favorite experiences from the holidays was driving through the most crooked street in the world, Lombard Street.

Silva is a 2022 Fulbright student from Lebanon. She is studying Mathematics at Appalachian State University.
