My name is Caroline Shepard. I’m an 21 year old college student at the University Oklahoma. I studied abroad for the 2015-2016 academic year in Clermont-Ferrand, France. I plan to graduate in May with a BA in International Studies with honors and a BA in French and Arabic. In my spare time I like to watch documentaries, catch up on global events, and drink excessive amounts of coffee. I decided to apply for the Global Engagement Fellowship because I imagined study abroad trips as an integral part of my college experience. This scholarship seemed like the perfect way to stay involved in international student life while funding study abroad journeys!
