Ocean Jangda - Applied Arts & Sciences

How Fulbright fits into my long term goals:

Over the course of many years spending my summers in nature, I developed a deep appreciation for nature. Today, this appreciation has evolved into a keen interest in cities, design, urban development, and business. Through RIT’s School of Individualized Study, I have been able to create a program which encompasses my interests, helping me to develop well-rounded critical thinking skills and an entrepreneurial spirit which will serve me throughout my life. Since high school, I have had an interest in architecture, and that interest has lead me to the study of real estate, and human spaces. Coming to Croatia and experiencing exciting and foreign urban environments while studying the hospitality industry in the classroom, has opened my eyes to new ideas and inspired me to learn more. Taking classes in RIT Croatia’s hospitality program has brought me closer to a career in real estate, and has helped me build a global context for the industry.

My best adventure:

For spring break I traveled to Greece. Even though Europe has been rocked by numerous terrorist attacks, and Greece is struggling to cope with refugees en masse, the trip to Athens and Santorini reaffirmed to me that Europe is full of kind, open-minded people who want to make the world a better place. 

My advice for applicants:

Just do it. It takes a lot less work than you might think, and the Study Abroad Office will bend over backwards to make sure you get there safely and have everything you need to thrive during your stay. There is probably no better investment than studying abroad, and RIT makes it easy to get out and have the time of your life. Arrange a meeting with the international fellowships advisor, and “just go”.
