The World Fellows Program introduced me to an amazing community of world leaders and inspired me to think more broadly about what it means to serve my community, both locally and globally. It was one of the most rewarding and enriching experiences of my time as a graduate student at Yale and I'm so lucky to have had the opportunity to be in the company of such impressive fellows.
