    Bright future for Fulbright scholar

    Sisterly guidance
    My sister was extremely influential to me because I saw what an amazing and successful person she had become, and I wanted to follow in her footsteps.

    Best Hamline memory
    My year abroad was my most memorable year, but my best on-campus Hamline memory was living in the dorms my freshman year. We had an amazing sense of community.

    Favorite professors
    My German advisor Kari Richtsmeier tops my 'Best of Hamline' list. Without Kari, there is no way I would have received the Fulbright grant. And my faculty advisor Matt Olson did a fantastic job guiding me through my honors project.

    Fulbright plans
    I will be an assistant teacher and tutor in a German school I hope to further my German language skills and knowledge about the culture. I also want to make an impact on the students' lives and inspire them to spend time in the U.S.

    Future ambitions
    I intend to apply to graduate school to become a guidance counselor. I want to inspire students to follow their dreams.

    Advice from a winner
    Study abroad -- it helps you learn about yourself, your values, and your goals. Living in a different culture causes you to take an objective look at your life and future and reevaluate.
