A psychology major and minor in German, Marisa Mohrer ’13 of Guilford, Conn., received a Fulbright Austria U.S. Teaching Assistantship.

Mohrer’s love for the German language stems from her relationship with her Viennese grandfather. She honed her German skills during a year of study and work in Munich, serving as a U.S. Consulate intern, a translator at an events agency and a counselor at a youth camp.

“Learning German has given me enormous insight into what it means to be a foreign-language student, which entails much more than just learning a language,” Mohrer says. “It is analogous to entering a new landscape and making it one’s own. It involves exploration, openness and perseverance.

“The Fulbright Austria Teaching Assistantship experience of guiding youth through such terrain will serve as a launching pad for my career teaching children and adolescents.”
