PAF Program Updates
New and returning fellows spent the week of August 15th in PAF training, preparing themselves for professional, academic, and ambassadorial success in the 2016 – 2017 academic year.
Following four days of training, this year’s PAF retreat gave the PAFs (and the PAT!) the chance to set expectations, get to know one another, and bond as a team.
This summer, with the support of the PAF program’s Professional and Academic Development Fund, I studied abroad in South Africa. I curated an independent course where explored cultural diversity theory and expression.
This past summer, I was an Affordable Housing Policy Fellow with Senator Mike Johnston’s office in Denver, Colorado, via the Urban Leaders Fellowship.
This May, after knowing that I was selected as a PAF, I bought my ticket back home to Taiwan to enjoy a summer more carefree than I have allowed myself since I began my education in the U.S. five years ago.
