This month, my Parker Huang Fellowship officially ended, and I flew back to New York to recuperate and see my family before figuring out my next step. So far, all I’ve figured out is that I want to be in Panama for at least a couple of more months or maybe until the end of the year — writing, volunteering and teaching English — and then:
I’ve never been in this situation before. A fellowship is a good way to ease into the real world, a safety net. But now I’m in the same position as many of my classmates were when we graduated from Yale last year — exciting and frightening.
I’m thankful to have received this fellowship, to have had the opportunity to try out freelancing with financial support, to live in a different country for a year, to have met many amazing people from around the world, to have been given the chance to publish several articles. And thank you to everyone who read my blog and writing throughout!
