Hamda Yusuf is a graduating senior majoring in European Studies with a minor in African Studies at the Jackson School of International Studies. She also will graduate in June with a minor in Germanics.
She recently was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship (2016-2017) in a first-ever cohort for a “Community-Based Combined Grant,” which requires both community work and teaching in a foreign country.
In fall 2016, she’ll be heading to Austria for 9 months to support Refugees Welcome, a non-profit that is dealing with the Middle East refugee crisis there, and will be an English teaching assistant in secondary schools.
