University of Bristol Postgraduate Award, University of Bristol - International Security

I recently graduated from Rollins College as an Alfond Scholar. Having grown up in Portland, Oregon and lived all along the United States’ West Coast I was forged amongst the Pacific Northwest’s rivers, lakes and mountains. My mission in life is to serve such that others may live. I have been determined to be a protector of my fellow humankind since I watched the Twin Towers fall on television as a kid. I am motivated by the passion, dedication and selflessness of those around me, and push myself to be worthy of their support and belief. I will be spending my time in Bristol studying the changes to the modern battlefield in the post-Global War on Terror era. I am honoured to carry on the proud tradition of the Fulbright Scholarship, especially in the country that founded the American colonies. The UK has a rich history and I look forward to immersing myself in the local literature, traditions and amongst my Bristol peers. I’m extremely excited to get out into the UK’s roughest conditions: scrambling in the Peak District, surfing in Cornwall or climbing in Bristol’s own Avon Gorge. In my downtime I am likely to be found playing pub trivia with friends or reading a novel by the closest fireplace I can find.
