NU's Fulbright Ambassador!

Mia Warren

Alumna Mia Warren has been named a Fulbright Alumni Ambassador for 2017!

Now living in Brooklyn, Mia focused her Fulbright research on the Japanese Peruvian (nikkei) community in Lima. At the Japanese Peruvian Cultural Center, she conducted interviews with elderly members of the nikkei community about their experiences during WWII, a time of intense xenophobia against Japanese Peruvians. Based on these interviews, Mia collaborated with sociologist and actor Eric Aso on a theatrical play script, "La Lista Negra," which later placed as a winner in a local playwriting competition.

Contact Mia today at M.Warren.alumniambassador@fulbrightmail.org to discuss her Fulbright experience!
