Katarina Guy

The Fulbright Aberystwyth University Summer Institute on Identity and Nationhood 

Katarina Guy was born in Nogales, Arizona and raised in nearby Sahuarita, Arizona. Currently, Katarina is a rising junior at The Ohio State University and is double majoring in Political Science and Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) with a specialization in Inequality and Justice. As a Comparative Studies minor, Katarina is excited to spend time in Wales and to gain an understanding of Welsh culture, politics, and economics.

Furthermore, Katarina is interested in pursuing an undergraduate thesis project about the politics of identity and thinks her experience in Wales will provide her with a more global perspective. Katarina looks forward to exploring identity through the lens of Wales and working with her peers to create connections across cultures.

Katarina is also passionate about access to education and advocating for marginalized communities. As a deputy director of the Undergraduate Student Government, Katarina has worked with her peers and other student organizations to highlight the experiences of immigrant students and to connect them with resources for academic and social success. Katarina is excited to learn about the migration patterns and immigration practices of Wales, and is eager to apply the knowledge obtained from this Summer Institute to better serve the immigrant and undocumented communities around her.

Finally, in addition to the academic experiences at the Summer Institute, Katarina hopes to meet and make life-long friends during the program. Katarina is thrilled to meet her cohort, to explore Wales together, and to make many memories along the way.
