How has the Fletcher alumni network been helpful to you? The Fletcher experience goes way beyond graduation. During my stay in Boston and after graduating, I reached out to numerous alumni from Fletcher and Tufts. The response was always warm, helpful, and exciting. Every time I have the opportunity to talk to alumni, I am reminded of the generous spirit of Fletcher. I am honored to be part of such a cohesive community, always ready to give advice and assistance, and to work together.

What was the most surprising thing you learned at Fletcher? The world is really small and there are Fletcherites everywhere. Fletcher and Tufts taught me to think and dream big. Fletcher prepared students to move forward in many different ways, nurturing a global mindset, and encouraging people to pursue their aspirations in the global arena. At least for me, Fletcher represented a passport to the rest of the world.
