EdUSA Romania Intern Coordinates Virtual Essay Writing Workshop

On October 27, Maricela Dominguez, EducationUSA Romania VSFS intern and senior at Florida International University, joined the Fulbright-EducationUSA Romania team for a virtual essay writing workshop, for the benefit of Romanian high school students.
Throughout the webinar, Maricela provided practical tips to help students approach the personal essay, deftly guiding them through interactive self-discovery activities as a way to zoom in on the core of their personal story and what distinguishes them from their peers. She also highlighted the importance of thorough research and painstaking revision.
Participants eagerly contributed to the discussion and had a chance to ask questions on the “do’s” and “don’ts” of essay writing.

EdUSA Romania Virtual Intern Connects with Romanian Students via Webinar

On October 19, we kicked off our Fulbright-EducationUSA Romania fall webinar series with an engaging presentation entitled “Beyond the Classroom: Life on American College Campuses”, featuring guest speaker Boston Kistka, one of our EducationUSA Romania VSFS interns and graduate assistant at SUNY-University at Buffalo.
Participants in the event, high school students from Bucharest and elsewhere, had a chance to learn more about daily life on a U.S. campus, from practical aspects, such as accommodation, to the myriad activities an undergraduate student can join in, while attending a U.S. university.
A large portion of the webinar was allotted to the Q&A section, in which Romanian students asked their own questions, on topics ranging from cultural adjustment to financial aid opportunities. Boston provided the participants with useful tips and encouraged them to get in touch with the FEAC-EducationUSA team for personalized guidance through the application process.
