Yes, they could

These days I am missing a lot my life in the US, especially because of this time of change and inspiration. Congratulations, Mr. President, you really could! However, elections should be as it happens with social media: is meant to be use as a relevante tool for a purpose, not as an end in itself. Social media definively best work with social trust. The question now is if “politicians 2.0″ are truly trustworthy. Les us see, as seeing is believing.

New songs for the new times. Some years ago it was in this way:


La experiencia de ser Becaria Fulbright

Si hay algo que las personas de la Comisión Fulbright nos repitieron sin cesar desde la concesión de nuestra beca es que nos convertiríamos de por vida en embajadores de la cultura de España en Estados Unidos y de Estados Unidos en España, además de de los valores Fulbright por todo el mundo. Y lo cierto es que así ha sido. Además de mis colaboraciones con la Comisión, una de las actividades que más repito desde entonces es ayudar a candidatos a afrontar sus solicitudes y entrevistas.

Hace un par de días fui invitada por la Asociación de Becarios de la Fundación Rafael del Pino a participar en una sesión informativa sobre Becas y Estudios de Postgrado en el extranjero en la que colaboraron miembros de otras asociaciones de becarios: la Spanish Fulbright Alumni Association, la Asociación de becarios “la Caixa”,  la Asociación de becarios de la Fundación Pedro Barrié de la Maza, la Fundación CajaMadrid y el Ryder Club. El encuentro se celebró en la Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Industriales. Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, el 12 de marzo de 2008.

Fulbright photo of the month

Fulbright photo of the month

 

After my intensive course of International Cultural Policies at Columbia University you can see me here in a plane, with my very Spanish fan, and heading to Chicago to spend my Summer Term. I was travelling to take a course of specialized English writing for museums at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and I was feeling very excited about studying at that gorgeous and prestigious school in addition to spend the summer in Chicago, absolutely “My kind of town.” It definitively was a unique academic and personal experience that I highly recommend.

About to take off, Bassam took this photo and sent it to the Fulbright Program. Eventually it was published as “The photo of the month” on the April 2007 newsletter. I have to admit that I feel proud of showing our Spanish wit in the shape of my fan: portable, environmentally friendly, silent, and ready to use whenever the air conditioned of any plane is not working.
