Hi, I’m Naia and I am a recent high school graduate, headed to Germany. Back in September, I decided to apply for the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Scholarship. This is a fully funded scholarship that is jointly run through the governments of Germany and the US. It was established in 1983 to strengthen ties and promote diplomacy between Germany and the US through student ambassadors. After a long application process, an interview in February, and a lot of anticipatory waiting, I was very excited to find out that I was one of the 250 Americans who received this amazing scholarship. I am incredibly thankful for this opportunity and am looking forward to being a student ambassador in Germany next year.  I can’t wait to see where my experiences take me.
