Adriana Elliott writes, “The scholarship has allowed me to focus solely on French instead of dividing my time between studying and work. I can now look confidently at the opportunities that will open for me as a true francophone.”

 

Natalie Riel writes, “I try to read Le Monde often for a different perspective on current issues. I am looking forward to putting my French language skills to use in a program that will allow me, in Africa or elsewhere, to help developing nations.”

 

Sharanya Sarathy writes, “Here in Nantes, I am improving my spoken and written French, and adjusting fully to a different culture. I can hardly wait for the day I will be able to come back here to live and work, at least part of the time.”

Sierra Dodd, Goldmark recipient, spent autumn of 2016 studying in Nantes. She writes, "I have loved every moment of it. I wanted to thank you and the Seattle Nantes Sister City Association again for the generous scholarship." 
Here are some photos she took while in Nantes.
