Emma loves being a student: her destinations were chosen because at one point her curiosity was ignited for a location, culture, or experience in a place she could only imagine visiting someday. She is grateful that “someday” has arrived and she can learn from the global community as a Bonderman Fellow. Her first destinations include Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, and Bolivia to learn about race and the complex formation of nation-identities. She will also travel to Nepal, India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam to learn about the role of religion in everyday life.
