“She has been a long-time mentor of mine and one of the primary influences in my travel abroad ambitions,” said Fedor of Assistant Professor of Russian Susan Vdovichenko, Ph.D. “Without her, I would never have had experiences…which taught me leadership, communication, mentorship, conflict/resolution, and problem solving—all essential skills for a Fulbright grantee.”

“I want to incorporate educating the public about scientific topics,” she said, “so that our community can be more knowledgeable and aware of what’s happening around them. Everyone at W&J has encouraged me to do my best, chase what I love, and take risks. I am glad I took the advice because I am now confident that I can reach my goals!”

The classes at W&J gave me the opportunity to experience diversity and broaden my range of understanding about things I didn’t know, especially with the general education requirements. All of that has added up to a better understanding of the world around me and how to interact with people who are different than me.
