The Mission Begins

After an exciting Fulbright scholarship application process last winter and an awesome 150 days of summer, on August 27, 2013, it was finally time to catch a flight to the US to start my mission in the world of NGOs: A year-long Fulbright Mid Career Professional Development project with the American Red Cross in Washington, D.C.

I was browsing Fulbright introduction materials on the plane. Somewhere roughly above the infamous Eyjafjallajökull glacier it hit me. In one of the broschures, Senator J. William Fulbright was described a “Man with a Mission”. That’s when I got the idea to call my new blog “Miss with a Mission”.
