“The Fulbright program presents a unique opportunity to be a teacher, to be a learner, and to be an ambassador, all at once. Romania is an especially interesting country to me because it is a crossroads of cultures – Romanian, Roma, Hungarian, German, Turkish, and pockets of others. It has fascinated me since I first stepped foot there with NATO, and that interest has only deepened. Besides the experiences, friendships, and professional relationships I have built in Romania, I have also used that knowledge to build friendships among expatriate Romanians in the UK and U.S.”
*Colin was a Fulbright ETA to Romania in 2019-20, but returned early from his program due to COVID-19.
