2014 graduate Amanda Pridmore, a political science major and student of German, received a Fulbright U.S. Student Program grant in 2017. She has spent her Fulbright year in Germany researching the funding and financing of Holocaust memorials. Amanda gave two conference talks and one short presentation at the Fulbright Berlin Seminar. She is also planning a major publication with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, where she worked prior to heading to Germany.

Listen to Amanda and Sylvia Cunningham, a Fulbright grantee from the University of Connecticut, share how talking to German people has fueled their careers in journalism and taught them about being American citizens abroad. Amanda speaks first.
