Hi! I'm Gina Bobadilla and I'm from Bogota, Colombia, now I'm in Philadelphia doing a master's program in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship at Temple University. What I've learned being in Philly is the strong sense of community here, a lot of love from the locals to their city, but also, a welcoming environment to anyone new in town. Everyone makes you feel part of the community.
My Fulbright experience so far has been amazing. I feel that every time you meet another Fulbrighter is like an instant friendship. You both know that you have something in common. The cultural exchange between the Fulbright people is exciting: Knowing about other countries, other ways to do things, main problems and solutions in other contexts... That just opens your eyes.
I've had the opportunity to share perspectives about Colombia, trying to be an ambassador of the good things that my country has to offer.
