Rachel Bischoff, Centre ’18, Reflects

Rachel Bishoff
Rachel Bischoff, Centre ’18, reflects, “As a Brown Fellow, I have met so many people who not only support my interest in acting, but also take it seriously as a craft that requires dedication and intelligence, and consider it meaningful as a platform of artistic expression. Through the Brown Fellows Program, I am given the chance to explore my passion for theatre in a way that most young actors are unable to do. The opportunity to have two summer enrichment projects in which I can intensively study acting to assist in pursuing my career goals is invaluable as a dramatic arts student. Overall, however, I am thankful to be surrounded by peers and mentors who support my passions full-heartedly and give me the chance to study what I love without apology.”

Maddie Loney, U of L ’15 takes the world by storm

Maddie Loney
Brown Fellows take the world by storm after graduation–just ask Maddie Loney, UofL ’15: “After graduating from the University of Louisville in May 2015, I spent the summer abroad in Ibri, Oman with the U.S. State Department’s Critical Language Scholarship (CLS). Thanks to my previous enrichment projects in Nepal, I was more prepared to adapt to a completely different culture and quickly fell in love with Oman. Additionally, I was well-prepared for CLS’ intensive Arabic environment due to my most recent enrichment project studying a year of Arabic in one summer at the University of Texas. I am so grateful for the Brown Foundation’s support, both academic and financial, in every experience during my undergraduate career. With each enrichment project and study abroad made possible by the Brown Foundation, I became more adaptable, open, and curious about this enormous and incredible world.” (Maddie is center, wearing a black scarf.)
