2019 Tech Fellow Lavonda Dean is in Orlando working for StarterStudio and is impressed by the many ways the incubator involves and caters to its community.
.
She writes, "Another instance of their presence in the community include multiple events ranging from workshops involving web development, human-centered-design, and youth engagement in business idea and customer development. Lunch and learns where any and everyone is welcomed to sit and listen, or even pop in for a quick introduction and bite. Founders talk by business owners, entrepreneurs, CEO’s and other knowledgeable individuals. Pitch nights and demo days where entrepreneurs have the opportunity to present their business ideas and plans for a chance to receive funding to further their creations and visions."

2019 Global Scholar Arria Hauldin is in Hanoi, Vietnam, working for Coins for Change. She and Andrew Taylor are teaching English as a second language and they are finding British English to be somewhat tricky.
.
Arria writes, "One thing that has been very unexpected is how different teaching English as a Second Language, or ESL, is from any other subject I have taught. Teaching British English has a lot more differences than I previously thought. Not only do we pronounce and spell certain words differently, certain grammatical structures get turned on their head. For example the sentence ‘Annie has an apple.’ in American English turns into ‘Annie’s got an apple.’ in British English."

Lauren Moran is featured in FSU's Student Star profiles for July. Moran is a familiar face around the Honors, Scholars, and Fellows House. She is a presidential scholar who has participated in UROP, Global Scholars, and has won an FSU Moellership, which took her to Honduras in 2018. .
Though research wasn't Moran's initial interest, her experience collecting data on E-series courses for curriculum improvement through UROP changed her mind. She states, "A lot of different experiences have pushed me out of my comfort zone, and they pushed me in a supportive way."
.
Congratulations, Lauren!

2019 Global Scholar Nathalie Salamo conducts an interview to collect Records of Perspective at Healing House in Cusco, Peru. She interviewed the volunteer coordinator at her host organization about why people come to Cusco and often stay for a long time. Salamo finds that immigration is a complex issue for many communities around the world.
.
"My interview with Marion provided me with valuable insight into how the dynamic between the Healing House and the local community can affect one's lifestyle and outlook on life. Healing House has definitely helped the local community by offering its services, but it can also hinder local businesses. It is interesting how mostly foreigners are the ones who come to Healing House for therapies, classes, or lodging. It also showed me an interesting perspective, especially coming from someone who is not a local Peruvian, but has lived in Cusco for years now."
