My name is Cambria Findley-Grubb, and I am currently on a Fulbright Scholarship at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This blog will recount my adventure over the next 9 months.
For some background on me, I graduated this past May from Chapman University in Orange, CA with a triple BA in Peace and Conflict Studies, Political Science, and Religious Studies. While at Chapman I was an active participant in Phi Sigma Sigma, Model United Nations, Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society and a multitude of other clubs. I also worked as a First Year Community Assistant in Housing and Residence Life.
This past summer I interned at Urban Spirit in Louisville, KY assisting with experiential learning simulations on poverty. Previously I have interned with the Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center, Disciples Peace Fellowship, Orange County Fair Communications Office, United Nations Association of Orange County, and Shared Hope International in Washington, DC.
Needless to say I am thrilled to be associated with the Gorsebrook Research Institute and living in Halifax.
Some fun facts about me:
Reading is one of my favorite hobbies. I love Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games and pretty much any book I can get my hands on.
TV shows and movies are also a constant source of entertainment, from Doctor Who to How I Met Your Mother.
I absolutely love traveling. I have been lucky enough to travel to over 20 countries in my life.
I grew up in California all my life, and have never encountered snow for an extended period of time. That will be a lifestyle alteration in Canada.
I have an addiction to black tea, okay any type of tea.
