Through Emory’s French department, I was able to refine my knowledge of the French language, learn about numerous new cultures and their histories, and personally experience life in Paris through the EDUCO study abroad program. I’ve met several of my close friends through my French classes, as well as some of my favorite professors. I am incredibly grateful for all of the memories and opportunities that my French classes and study abroad experience provided me.
Your story is one of great beauty as you have braved so much adversity to get here. Congratulations on earning this degree, Juliana! I so enjoyed having you in class this semester. I will forever remember you sitting in a car on our Zoom conversation with Moussa Touré and asking the most important question of all. I wish you a future as bright as you.
