By Caitlin Salvino, 2016-2017 Killam Fellow from Carleton University to American University
Canada is America’s greatest ally and trading partner. This is something I have had the honour to witness and participate in through my experience as a Killam Fellow and interning at the Canadian Embassy. Being named Carleton’s Killam Fellow for 2016-2017 provided me with a once in a lifetime opportunity to gain cross-cultural experience studying at American University in Washington D.C. In the past two and a half months on my exchange I have been able to grow as an individual, academic and professional through my involvement on campus and in the D.C. community.
