Week 7:
Academic plans

Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Clinical Psychology

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics | Iowa City, Iowa

August 16, 2016 | I continued my work on the functional and T1 imaging in Bipolar disorder study this week. I am making better progress than I thought I was going to. I have kind of got a groove going when going through the data.   I would have to say that academically; this week was one of my […]

Week 6:
Lab Celebration

Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Clinical Psychology

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics | Iowa City, Iowa

August 16, 2016 | This week I began working on the functional and T1 imaging in Bipolar disorder study (T1 rho). For this study, I am responsible for data clean-up. This entails me going through about 90 subjects’ files. While looking at each subject’s file, I have to simultaneously look at REDcap. REDcap is an online database where the […]

Week 12:
Watching the Audience

Slater Fellow in Theatrical Development

Creede Repertory Theatre | Creede, Colorado

August 9, 2016 | I’m about to embark on my last week of my fellowship journey. I will be leaving Creede exactly one week from today. I can’t believe how fast this summer has flown by. It has been a pretty typical week for me at CRT. I had some performances of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and The (Curious Case […]

Week 8:
Saying Goodbye, For Now

Becker Fellow in Research

University of Chicago Medical Center | Chicago, Illinois

August 9, 2016 | It is hard to believe that my eight weeks here at the University of Chicago are over. I certainly did not think that eight weeks could fly by as quickly as they did and I find myself wishing that I had just two more weeks here. The highlight of this week was presenting the results […]

Week 13:
Looking to the Future

Tomlinson Fellow in Representative Government

Congressional Office of David Loebsack (D-IA 2) | Washington, D.C.

August 9, 2016 | The end of last week meant that I only had two more weeks left in D.C. to learn all that I could. This learning, like always, was done both during and after my job. While the work I did at my job tended to stay constant from week to week, there are always new tasks […]

Likkle Later, Jamaica

Watson International Fellow in Political Research

Law Offices of Andrea Moore | Kingston, Jamaica

August 9, 2016 | I am writing this post in Florida, hundreds of miles from Kingston. My flight was yesterday and the moment I was reunited with my family, it was as if I had never left the States. Was my fellowship in Jamaica a dream? The last few months surely felt like a dream, and yet I have […]

Week 9:
New Eyes

Knapp Fellow in Animal Behavior and Conservation

Sea World | Orlando, Florida

August 9, 2016 | This week I had a pretty different schedule, because….MY BEST FRIEND VISITED ME!! She lives in Oregon and we don’t get to visit each other much. Ever since we first became friends it’s been our dream to go to Harry Potter World in Universal together. So, with me being in Orlando, we decided to take […]

Week 9:
Hamilton is NOT Secretary of State…

August 9, 2016 | …but John Kerry is, and this week, he came to Argentina! This is the news that I wasn’t able to discuss in last week’s blog. We are not allowed to discuss these types of events until they are official, and the press release was not published until the day before his arrival. However, this week […]

Week 4:
Learning how to Network and Plan

Andrews Fellow in Nonprofit & Community Education

Project Rousseau: Hyde Park Academy | Chicago, Illinois

August 9, 2016 | This week for my internship I had a lot more tasks to complete. As I mentioned previously, I was waiting to hear back from the food pantry about starting dates. I received an email explaining what the HPA students would be doing and what would be required of them, as well as three different possible […]

Week 8:
Creativity Unlocked

Stimson Fellow in Museum Studies

African American Museum of Iowa | Cedar Rapids, Iowa

August 7, 2016 | We officially broke ground on putting in the new exhibit on Monday! Well, technically Brianna started on Sunday with her husband. But I still got to help with a lot of the work, and I got to explore my creativity! Exhibit installation is hard work. We’ve moved heavy walls, lifted heavy drills, and have painted […]
