Linda True Lor
I hope you’re doing well.
I am Linda Lor, one of the recipients of the 2022 Raven Scholarship. I just wanted to update you on how I’m doing, as this scholarship is one of the few things that are supporting my education abroad.
I am writing to you from Budapest, Hungary. It is currently 3:00PM here, but I am extremely jet-lagged from my flight. Despite that, I have been enjoying the city and have been fortunate enough to meet many people. On the 22nd, I met up with a Hmong acquaintance of mine from Laos studying architecture in Pecs, Hungary. I have also visited the Hungarian Parliament, the Hungarian House of Music, and several parks near my apartment. And yesterday I spent a little over 3 hours applying for my residence permit (an extremely stressful process if you ask me!).
I’ve attached some pictures below. Feel free to share this with other scholarship committee members. 🙂
How is it in the U.S? As summer is coming to an end, do you have any big plans?
