I will be going to Austria on a Fulbright Combined Grant. This means I will be teaching English to secondary school students while also carrying out a research project with the University of Salzburg. My research will be on the intersection of youth, social media, and democracy. I am grateful for the Germanics department and my instructors for being incredibly influential in my Fulbright application and giving me the language skills I need to be successful on this opportunity. One of my major goals for Fulbright is that when I speak German to someone, they will reply in German instead of English!
