Fletcher gave me a new perspective on international affairs. The blend of international law and diplomacy studies is what I call as an experience "quintessentially Fletcher".

Be it a corridor discussion or thought provoking classroom debate- one just can't sit back and watch. You would be engaged & involved. That is how empowered you feel at Fletcher School. However, it was from the personal interactions with the people who were part of Fletcher that I learned the most from. Many of my friends came to Fletcher from different parts of the world and after having faced many hurdles. They brought with them rich knowledge but most importantly unforgettable experiences and unmatchable passion to give back to the society they belong to and serve a wider international community. The professors never disappointed me who inspired me with their sheer intelligence, experience and grasp on international affairs and contemporary world issues.

It has been a journey of a lifetime.
