“I have not only learned from my professors, but I have also learned much from my fellow classmates.”
Why I chose UB Global Development and Peace Program
After receiving my BA from University of Bridgeport, I was introduced to this program by my advisor. After speaking to GLDP alumni, I was convinced that it was the natural next step for me to take.
What I enjoy most about the program
I enjoy the diversity of the student body. I find my classmates to be engaging and active thinkers. Also, students are willing to help each other, creating a supportive environment.
On classroom experiences
The classroom experiences are full of challenges, which encourages me to work hard and my knowledge base has grown so much. Also, I have not only learned from my professors, but I have also learned much from my fellow classmates.
Plans for after graduation
I plan to pursue a teaching position, and I know that my degree from UB will help me to fulfill this goal back in my home country.
