– by Khalid Sheikh –
This Spring, Fulbridge invited Fulbright grantees and alumni– ETAs, researchers, foreign scholars, and FLTAs– to submit a video, essay, photo essay, or photo that reflected A Day in the Life of their Fulbright experience.
These submissions could be internally or externally focused and aim teach audiences something new about the authors’ host countries.
I initially recorded this video as a way to show my friends back home what I had been doing during my year in Latvia. To me, this video shows everything I loved about living in Latvia: the beauty of Riga’s Old Town, my amazing students and coworkers, and my fellow Fulbrighters. Enjoy!
Khalid graduated in 2018 from the University of Houston with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in History. He worked as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Riga at Riga Stradins University and Riga Classical Gymnasium. Upon his completion of the Fulbright, Khalid returned to Texas to attend medical school.
