“I got lost, I did not cry, it was honestly just like running a mile, I was just happy I made it back.” — Cierra PowellOur first Gilman Scholarship award winner is on the show today, so yeah; kind of a big deal, and Cierra took advantage of it, in a big way.

She's a true scientist, and a small country located on the Northeast side of South America by the name of Ecuador turned out to be her laboratory.Listen to this interview if you want to receive a Gilman Scholarship.I repeat...Listen to this interview if you want to receive a Gilman Scholarship.She was able to go because she received a Gilman Scholarship which we learn in the interview is more than mere funding given for education. It goes beyond the trip, and lasts a lifetime.“One day you will be called upon to break a big law in the name of justice and rationality.” - James C.

"Who Am I, what does it mean to be from where I'm from, and how do I explain that to people who are not from the U.S.?" — Kirsten KohlerI think it's safe to say that Kirsten Kohler enjoys Germany, and learning German. You'd have to, to spend 11 months there. Kirsten lived in the town of Freiburg where she was able to take day trips to France, and Switzerland. She taught, she interned, she learned, and she walks us through every step of the way in this detailed tale of a year in Freiburg, Germany...PROST! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
"We're really fortunate to live in a time where it's so easy to keep in contact with everyone. I feel like 20 years ago none of that would have been possible." — John David (@johndavidmullins)John David, a pre-med student, was the first person I've had on the show that studied abroad in Vigo, Spain. In this interview he  introduces us to a language that most people don't know about called Galician.Galician is an Indo-European language of the Western Ibero-Romance branch, according to Wikipedia. What that means is that it is a mix of Portuguese and Spanish according to John.This interview is packed with stories, recommendations, and information. If you're thinking about Spain, living with a host family, or learning Spanish, this interview is definitely for you.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
"It was what I needed to keep propelling me forward in the degree that I was pursuing"  — Tara Efobi (@taraefobi)Tara Efobi studied abroad and the process worked for her. She was studying fashion and now works, in, you guessed it; fashion.The destination for the interview was Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, which is part of Scandinavia. Tara, however, (like most students) did her fair share of traveling during her time there.This is the first time I've interviewed someone where something didn't go wrong, so it was a 'running on all cylinders, full speed ahead' journey. Tara was also the first student on the show that rented a bicycle during her time abroad, which I think is a terrific idea. Did I mention she's got a decent Instagram and Youtube following?Fashion ✅ Influencing ✅ Time of your life...✅ I genuinely had a lot of fun on this interview, and I think you will, too.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
