Alumni Spotlight: Anastasia Walrod

Meet Anastasia Walrod! Anastasia is a USM Chateau Program alumni and is currently serving as a Community Health Specialist Peace Corps volunteer in Malawi.

When asked how her study abroad experience prepared her for the future, Anastasia said: “During my study abroad experience in Strasbourg, my perspective of the world was truly broadened as I was able to encounter different cultures, visit the European Parliament, and better understand how the world works. I also became so much more confident in myself and ability to travel internationally, which in part inspired me to want to work internationally one day. 4 years after my time in Strasbourg, it is a joy to say that I am currently serving as a Community Health Specialist in Peace Corps Malawi, a dream that would have been impossible had it not been for my study abroad experience.”
