Communications Staff

Anna Aronowitz ’14 is a neuroscience major with an English minor. She has been awarded a 10-month Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in Indonesia.

Aronowitz, who is from San Francisco, has worked as a student researcher for Jan Thornton, professor of neuroscience. She was also a writing associate in Oberlin’s Writing Center. During her free time, Aronowitz hosted a radio show on WOBC.

During her Fulbright year, Aronowitz says she plans to visit Bali and learn more about gamelan music and performance. She also wants to travel to Thailand and Vietnam, but with a special purpose: “My grandmother, who I've never met before, lives in Vietnam, so I hope to meet her for the first time.”

Aronowitz has previous study abroad experience in Costa Rica, where she lived with a host family and took intensive Spanish language classes during winter term. She has a particular interest in teaching, and she wants to learn more about the ways teaching and learning in Indonesia differ from education in the United States.

After the Fulbright year, Aronowitz says she may apply to medical school, but she is also interested in international healthcare or working with immigrant families to educate them about their rights and help them navigate the immigration process.
