Fulbright Alumni Experience: Vienna, Austria, 1986, Student
As a classical concert pianist, the opportunity to study in Vienna, Austria was life-changing. Interacting with Viennese people and getting to know others from around the world gave me an early appreciation of global education. That appreciation has shaped my professional and personal life, instilling in me the desire to reach out and connect with others from around the world. Musically, I continue to focus my global efforts on studying and performing Persian music with a talented tar player from Iran. At SCC, I work hard to foster a climate of acceptance and celebration of diversity within the World Music classes I teach.
