Description

“I got lost, I did not cry, it was honestly just like running a mile, I was just happy I made it back.” — Cierra Powell


Our 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. I haven't interviewed anyone yet, who innovated her study abroad experience the way she did.


Her passion lies in studying the inefficiencies of foreign aid to 3rd world countries. 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. Scott
